About Us

The Broward Symphonic Band is a COMMUNITY group that meets at Broward College Central Campus in Davie, Florida. Membership is made up of approximately 125 members with ages ranging from teens to eighties.

The Band provides opportunities for our musicians to perform challenging band literature at the highest level for the enrichment of the membership and community.

Rehearsals are held once a week on Monday evenings from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (2 1/2 hours). We perform four concerts between October and May in the beautiful Bailey Concert Hall. Here's our Rehearsal / Concert Schedule.


Membership is open to all college students and adults, with instrumental experience, wishing to participate in a wind band ensemble.  Auditions may be required for placement within certain sections to achieve a well balanced performing ensemble.

High School students are welcome to join the group, but must commit to all rehearsals and concerts in order to earn Community Service Hours.  An audition (sightreading & scales) will be required of all new members joining the group in the Fall of 2012.  Those high school students currently a member of the Broward Symphonic Band will not be required to audition, except in cases to better place those individuals within certain sections of the ensemble

Neil Jenkins is our dedicated and renowned Musical Director. Read more about Mr. Jenkins here.

The Band is affiliated with Broward College and may be taken as a course for 1 credit hour.
