UCB to perform at MBA - June 2021

The University Community Band has been invited to perform at the Missouri Bandmasters Convention this summer.  The performing ensemble will be significantly smaller than the full band.  If you have an interest in performing on this concert, please contact Dr. Zastoupil.

Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 Announcement

This ensemble has served the greater Springfield community for decades and been a significant source of musical and social growth for many. Our rehearsals are a great sense of enjoyment for all of us!

However, due to the current state of affairs with COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart we are going to put a hold on the 2020-21 UCB season. We will cancel UCB rehearsals for Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 and re-evaluate the current health crisis concerning Fall 2021.

This wasn’t an easy decision, but it was the most logical. We felt it’s best to keep our membership safe and healthy without putting anyone at unnecessary risk. The well-being of our members, as well as the entire campus community, is of utmost importance to all of us at Missouri State and we hope to make music together again in Fall 2021! We will miss rehearsing on Monday evenings in Wehr Band Hall, but the UCB will be together again!

If you have questions, comments, concerns, please direct those to Dr. John Zastoupil.
