The band is composed of a wide range of musicians from recreational players to professional private teachers and band directors from ages 15 to 75, all of whom are volunteers. We perform a variety of music including jazz, Broadway show tunes, marches, and classic band repertoire. All of our programs are free to the public. We have performed a variety of programs for the Wylie, Texas community. We have also performed at the Meyerson Symphony Center and Christmas programs at North Park Mall in Dallas,. The band has a smaller group which is available to perform in smaller venues, such as assisted living facilities and community events. The Wylie community has embraced the band and it has been designated by the Mayor of Wylie, Eric Hogue, as the Official Community Band of the City of Wylie.
I didn't touch my instrument for 17 years and was very nervous about playing again. The Wylie Community Band is the perfect venue for me! We play music and have fun in an atmosphere that is warm and inviting. Thanks to the WCB, I can see myself playing for a long time!!

What makes Wylie Community Band special is that it's truly a community band. WCB attracts local amateur, student and professional musicians of all kinds, and we come together once a week to make music. Ross and Liz Grant will make any North Texas musician feel right at home in Wylie.

The Wylie Community Band has fulfilled such a musical need in my life, as I have dreamed of being part of a band or orchestra since graduating from high school many years ago.  Making music with the WCB under the leadership of our wonderful director, Dr. Ross Grant, brings me such joy. His easy going leadership style, his amazing ability to motivate us to be the best, and his warm personality make our rehearsals such a fun time."
Stephanie Codara, Alto Saxophone

The Wylie Community Band has been one of my favorite things about moving back to Texas. It's great to get to play music again with some of my old friends in a laid-back and fun atmosphere and to be a part of the community where I grew up. After using my brain one way all week at work, I really enjoy getting to exercise it in a totally different way at rehearsal on Sundays.

Relatively new to Texas, and in an area that boasts the most concert bands per square inch in the U.S., I have spent the last 2 ½ years looking for a concert band that shares my ideals regarding music selection, musicianship, leadership and friendly atmosphere. I have, recently, found that band in the form of Dr. Ross Grant and the Wylie Community Band. The WCB = great music, strong musicians, and a hospitable atmosphere under the friendly and knowledgeable direction of Dr. Grant. As the word gets out, this relatively new concert band will surely become one of North Texas' premier concert bands.
