General Information on Nevers' Band

Nevers' Second Regiment Band is the Capital City's professional community band, dedicated to bringing an annual series of summer concerts to the greater Concord area. Having Links to the Civil War, it is the oldest continuing musical organization in the state and one of the oldest bands in America. Though originally a 24-member, nearly all-brass band, typical of mid-19th century ensembles, it has evolved since into a slightly larger organization of expanded modern military band instrumentation. Its compound name derives from its late 19th century affiliation with the Second Regiment of the New Hampshire National Guard until 1898, and its direction for more than a half century by Claremont cornetist Arthur Nevers from 1884 to 1940.

Our repertoire ranges widely from the Civil War tunes played during the band's early years, to the favorite marches and novelty numbers from the turn of the century's golden age of bands, to more current show tune arrangements and classics of the serious wind ensemble repertoire. Weekly rehearsals occur on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 PM in the Concord High School band room during the concert season. The summer concert series starts in June and concludes in August with locations in Concord and surrounding communities. Visit our Schedule page for locations and times.
