The band is a full symphonic band boasting a total roster of over 100 musicians ranging in age from 16 to 85 years of age. Each concert features 70 to 80 highly qualified musicians from all walks of life, the majority of whom are music educators.

Sixteen concerts are presented annually during June and July with the traditional season opening concert occurring on Memorial Day. The Park Band performs an indoor Christmas Concert in December.
