The Williamsport Community Band was first organized in August 1927 with over 40 members. The band performed concerts and played for many community events. In June 1928, the band had the honor of being the official band for the Maryland Delegation at the Democratic Convention held in Houston TX. The number of years the band continued to perform is not documented.

The Williamsport Community Band was reestablished in 1998 with 80+ members. The Band provides quality entertainment at concerts, community events and tri-state festivals. The Williamsport Community band has participated in the MD Festival of Community Bands and will be hosting the event in 2014. The band was honored when chosen to perform at the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton with the Metropolitan Detroit Chorale for the commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg in June of 2013.

Many stories have been old over the years, including the fact that the 'Band Stand' was built by the WPA in 1930 in recognition of the Williamsport Community Band. Byron Memorial Park is home to other structures built by the WPA, the Community Building and the Stone part of the Boy Scout Building. Williamsport Town Hall and stone walls around our town were constructed in the same era.
