Bay Area Concert Band

Director Stephen Simpkins

The Bay Area Concert Band serves Coos Bay/North Bend and the surrounding communities. It consists of approximately 35 musicians from in and around the Bay Area including Myrtle Point, Coquille, and Bandon. Stephen Simpkins is the current director.

Typically the band performs three concerts each year: two at the First Presbyterian Church in North Bend and a third one at Mingus Park in Coos Bay. The band annually kicks off the Oregon Coast Music Festival with the concert in the park.

The Concert Band is always looking for community participation as a musician, part of the audience, or a BACB contributor. We would love to have your support!
