Donate to the Golden Gate Park Band
The Golden Gate Park Band has been playing free public concerts on Sundays in Golden Gate Park continuously since September of 1882. Now in its 137th season, the GGPB is one of the last big-city outdoor bands to present a full season of free concerts. The Band offers a variety of music at its concerts including classic band favorites, operas, marches, Broadway show tunes, orchestral transcriptions, novelty tune, folk music, big band swing music and original works for concert band. The Band collaborates with various ethnic and arts groups in San Francisco who bring to the concert their dance groups, costumes, singers, and music with past seasons including Mexican, Polish, Armenian, Italian, African-American, French, Hungarian, Ukrainian, and Spanish music and dance. Concerts are presented every Sunday place in the Spreckels Temple of Music at the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park, beginning at 1:00 p.m. and lasting about two hours.
The Golden Gate Park Band is a fiscally-sponsored affiliate of InterMusic SF, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to small-ensemble music in the San Francisco Bay Area.
