This is the McKinney Dance Band’s annual salute to Veterans in the historic McKinney Performing Arts Center. As always they will be performing patriotic favorites and some great big-band music. We will also feature the vocal group Swazzy Singers and The Boogie Sisters trio.
The McKinney Community Band will fill the Courtyard Theater with the sounds of Broadway and the silver screen.
This family-friendly concert will also feature our annual instrument petting zoo for the kids, to allow them to see up close the various instruments that make up a band!
The McKinney Community Band presents an eclectic mix of concert band literature showcasing pieces from area band programs. As always, admission to our concerts is free and perfect for any age. Families are welcome!
As always the concert is free to attend and we do not require reservations or tickets for this event.
The McKinney Community Band salutes our beloved Land of Liberty at our annual patriotic concert that celebrates all things American – our military, our flag, our founding fathers and our freedom! As always our concerts are free and open to the public. Bring the whole family (our concerts are always-kid friendly!) and enjoy an afternoon on McKinney’s quaint historic downtown square either for lunch before the concert or dinner and dessert after the concert.
FREE TICKETS AVAILABLE/RESERVATIONS SUGGESTED: Due to growing audiences (we LOVE that and thank you!), we’ve been asked by the venue to provide our concert guests with free tickets. We ask that you order one ticket for each person in our party. This will help us better track attendance, which the McKinney Arts Commission appreciates, too, and it allows those with tickets to choose their seats beginning at 3:30 p.m. Those without tickets may enter the theater starting at 3:50 p.m.
Reserve general seating at this LINK.
(You will be taken to a different website, Eventbrite, to complete the transaction.)

The McKinney Community Band presents a FREE family concert full of thrilling, spooky favorites from movies and stage … music to put you in the Halloween spirit. In fact, costumes are encouraged! The instrument petting zoo was so popular with young guests last year, the band will again provide kids the opportunity to see and hold real band instruments.
The concert is free, but with the venue’s limited seating, concertgoers are encouraged to secure a free ticket through Event Brite. Ticket holders will be seated beginning at 3:30 p.m. and those without a ticket may begin seating around 3:45 p.m. Concert starts at 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 14 at the McKinney Performing Arts Center in downtown McKinney.
The concert venue is in the heart of beautiful historic downtown McKinney, providing great opportunities for lunch prior to the concert or dinner after, as well as some pre-concert shopping!
The McKinney Community Band concert is made possible by a grant from the McKinney Arts Commission and other donations made by band supporters.
