MC^3 Tubas Section!

The Maryville College-Community Concert Band (MC3Band)serves a dual purpose: to provide a means of artistic expression for all its members (community, faculty, staff, and student) within the wind band medium, and to provide Maryville students with the opportunity to perform and learn within a large ensemble setting. Established in 1992 by Professor Larry Smithee, the band was conducted by Mr. Tom Delozier from 2012-2015. Band members include working musicians, educators, high school and college students, business professionals and retirees from throughout East Tennessee. Using a symphonic band instrumentation, the band performs repertoire from the entire scope of the wind band tradition.
