Clear Spacer History of the Saratoga Community Band  

Golden Gate Park Community Band Performance

The Saratoga Community Band was founded in 1989 with 35 members, and today numbers over 80 musicians ranging in age from 16 to 70+. The band is sponsored by the Los Gatos-Saratoga Recreation Department, and is open to all interested musicians in the California Bay area. The band rehearses weekly; small ensembles from the band also perform for local events. In June 2010 at the San Francisco Golden Gate Community Band Festival, the band was awarded a CERTIFICATE of SPECIAL CONGRESSIONAL RECOGNITION from the Congress of the United States of AMERICA for outstanding service to our community.
