Outstanding high school instrumentalists are invited for membership in the Pomona Conert Band.  Reading and performing a wide repertoire under skilled leadership promotes their musical growth as well as supplementing the band's membership.  PCB appreciates the support of the Pomona Unified School District in this aspect of our program.
