About Us

Our Story

image43

 The Band was founded in July of 1993 by the late Helen Brooks, a retired Forsyth High School teacher and supporter of local arts organizations, whose vision was to establish a community band to give musicians in the area an outlet for their talent, and to give residents an opportunity to hear fine music within their community. Though Helen Brooks has since passed away, she began a rich tradition of community performance that continues to be enjoyed by all.
The band held its first performance in December of 1993 in the auditorium of the Sawnee Cultural Arts Center in Cumming, Georgia. Since then it has continued  to play for the enjoyment of thousands of people who enjoy the sound of flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trombones, tubas, euphoniums, French horns, trumpets and drums playing together in concert. 

The Sounds of Sawnee Concert Band is a community band in every sense, and it is proud to now be established as a community resource. The band provides  cultural enrichment for members of the community through regular concert performances. It provides a unique opportunity for musicale expression  for both distinguished musicians and amateurs alike, to further develop and refine music skills in a friendly setting. 

The band continually seeks to   instill in all people an awareness of music’s important role in the enrichment of the human spirit.
