Founded in 1988 and based in the Greater Portland area, the Maine POPS Concert Band is Southern Maine’s largest (and best) amateur community concert band.


The MPCB encourages musicians of all ages, from school-age to senior citizens, and of all abilities, from novice to professional, to foster a life-long love of music, music history, performance, and our shared heritage. The MPCB provides opportunities for musicians to enhance their musical skills and knowledge and serve the social welfare of our communities through the study, performance and presentation of concert band music.
