March 13, 2019 – OCB Presents a FREE CONCERT at Ohlone College in Fremont!

The old saying goes: “FREE is Better then Cheap!” So – the Ohlone Community Band (OCB) invites One & All to join us in the Jackson Theater of the Smith Center for the Performing Arts “On the Hill” at Ohlone College in Fremont – for an amazing FREE Concert performed by the amazing Ohlone Community Band. The 60 Band Members and Conductor Tony Clements have put together a FREE Concert of Band Members’ Favorites representing the Last 10 Years of music played by the Band under Tony’s leadership. And though all tickets can be obtained at the Smith Center Box Office for FREE – there is nothing “cheap” about the quality of the Band Music that this 40+ year old Ohlone College Music Machine will provide on March 13.

March 13, 2019 – Doors Open at 7:00pm – Downbeat is at 7:30pm

The Ohlone Community Band (OCB) is a self-funded part of the Music Course Offerings of Ohlone College Community Education. Membership is open to all Brass, Woodwind, String Bass & Percussion Musicians. We rehearse every Wednesday evening, 7:30-9:30pm, in TV Studio B (SC-144) on the Ohlone College Fremont Campus. And – in the Fall of 2019 we will be moving into the beautiful new Band Room (Room 2317) that is part of newly-constructed Academic Core of the Ohlone College Fremont Campus.
