The Sharon Bands’ mission is to provide musicians with an opportunity to play in high quality concert and jazz bands; and to provide the surrounding communities with the benefits of live local ensembles.
Dedicated Musicians. Excellent Music. Serving Metro West and South Shore areas in Massachusetts.
The Sharon Bands were founded in 1988 by the late Roy Scott, under the auspices of the Sharon Recreation Department. The Band has grown from a handful of Sharon residents to about 60 musicians ranging in age from early teens to seventies.
Members come not only from Sharon and nearby towns but the South Shore, Rhode Island, Metro West, and the City of Boston. Our current membership is drawn from a number of area communities, including Avon, Barrington, Brockton, Canton, Chestnut Hill, Dedham, Dover, Easton, Foxboro, Framingham, Natick, Norwood, Plainville, Quincy, Scituate, Sharon, Stoughton, Walpole, Waltham, Westwood, Weymouth, and more.
Members include: developing students; adults who have picked up their instruments after many years; musicians with professional training and experience; and several music teachers. They come together because The Sharon Bands offers one of the best opportunities in the Boston / Providence area to make quality music in a collegial atmosphere.
