The Palos Verdes Symphonic Band is a community band based in the Palos Verdes Peninsula area of Southern California. We perform regularly and are seeking new members.



The Band

Under the direction of Christine Hayes, the The band consists of about sixty musicians, including school music teachers, engineers, physicians, homemakers, as well as current and former professional and amateur instrumentalists. Many members have played in university ensembles, military bands, and touring "big bands" under well known conductors. Individual musicians also teach publicly and privately as well as perform in local churches, orchestras, and community musical theater.


The Palos Verdes Band performs regularly. Tickets prices are reasonable, and we usually have featured performers. We also perform at community events.


Regular rehearsals are at 7:30 PM and held at  Riviera United Methodist Church, unless otherwise specified.  The schedule is subject to change.
