Portland Gay Symphonic Band
The Portland Gay Symphonic Band (PGSB) is a traditional wind ensemble (with percussion) that accepts members without auditions. Joseph Accuardi-Gilliam, our conductor since 2005, selects literature and encourages members to attain the highest level of performance. Our band is recognized as one of the top adult bands in the Portland metro area. The band is active on a national level as a member of the Lesbian and Gay Bands Association (LGBA) and the Association of Concert Bands.
We welcome anyone who plays an instrument to consider joining. While many members are accomplished musicians, many new members had not played since high school or college. Rehearsals for Concert Band are on Wednesday nights, held at Cleveland High School, 8300 3400 SE 26th Ave, Portland, OR 97202.
