Oak Ridge Community Band (ORCB) has been performing in the Secret City since 1944, when the city was still a secret! Then, as now, instrumental musicians who love to play have entertained our community and lifted our spirits. 

The band performs throughout the year, with outdoor summer concerts at the Bissell Park Pavillion, and indoor concerts at a variety of venues. Concerts include a variety of music appealing to all age groups, with classical, contemporary, big band, march, patriotic and jazz selections guaranteed to include some of your favorite works of music. 

In addition to our website, you can find us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter!


In lieu of admission, the band relies on donations to help defray expenses. Through the continued generosity of our donors, we are able to serve the wonderful community of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. As a gesture of our appreciation, Special Benefactors, Benefactors, Patrons, Sponsors and Friends  are acknowledged at ORCB concerts. 

ORCB is a 501(c)3 Organization that participates with both Amazon Smile
and Kroger Cares. Your donation may be tax deductible. 

In addition to performing, ORCB has a focus on music education, inviting novice musicians, young and old, to play in the band and learn from players of professional caliber.
