Central Kentucky Concert Band

From 1994 until 2014, Dr. Peter LaRue, Director of the Tiger Bands, also served as the Music Director & Conductor of the Central Kentucky Concert Band. This relationship was important for both programs.

Although starting during the Fall of 2014 the CKCB is under new management, performing in this great ensemble likely would still be a great additional musical experience for select Band Scholars [as it has been for Band Scholars in the past].

The Central Kentucky Concert Band, founded in 1976, is based primarily at Transylvania University and each year performs three "Regular Season" concerts [two at Transylvania and one at the Lexington Opera House], as well as maintains an active "Summer Pops Series". The CKCB is comprised of extraordinarily talented professional, semi-professional and amateur musicians, from all walks of life, who share a commitment to music-making and band performance. The CKCB is considered by many to be the premiere ensemble of its nature in the southeastern United States.
