The Middlesex Concert Band is a nonprofit community band based in Wakefield, Massachusetts that strives to bring affordable entertainment to Wakefield and surrounding communities.


MCB is led by Music Director Mark E. Olson, the Director of Bands for Harvard University and an accomplished trumpet player.


With over 50 volunteer performers, the band plays traditional and contemporary wind ensemble music, marches, big band sounds, folk tunes and music from Broadway and Hollywood.  The band’s mission is to promote greater knowledge and appreciation for wind music while bringing enjoyment to its listening audience.


Originally founded in the 1950s as a marching band, we later evolved into a concert band and gave our first performance in the spring of 1975 at Memorial Hall in Melrose.


From September to May, MCB presents a series of pops and holiday concerts. During the summer months, the band can be heard playing traditional outdoor concerts in town parks and commons throughout the region.
