Community music in Potsdam, NY has a rich and varied history. In 2010, the concept of a community band was resurrected – a band in which all adult musicians who play traditional wind band instruments are welcome. There was an overwhelming response to the call for players, and the musicians debuted the first performance of the band in 25+ years on July 10. The promise is bright for many more seasons of concerts by this enthusiastic band of musicians.

About The Logo

The new logo for the band was designed in honor of the 2010 reconvening of the band. It captures the spirit of the band. Blue was chosen as the accent color in homage to the old time Potsdam Cornet Band, which proudly wore blue uniforms in Potsdam long ago.
