An Oregon Nonprofit

We’re not your average concert band.

SW Portland Community Band is a group of adults and Wilson High students, age 14 and up, who are redefining the American concert band experience.

Our pub-style community events are celebrations of music, food, family, friends, and of course, beer!

About the Band

Nick Caldwell, Director

Directed by Nick Caldwell, the band typically hosts two concerts a year — always with beer! In fact, the band has our own brewmaster, Cameron Murphy (son of clarinet player Cathy Murphy).

Now in our 4th season, the band rehearses every other Wednesday from September through May. We’re always looking for players! If you’re interested in joining, send an email to Kristin at swcommunityband@gmail.com.
