West Central Concert Band

A Quarter Century of Excellence

The Ferris State University West Central Concert Band (WCCB) is currently celebrating its 24th Concert Season. The WCCB is a symphonic concert band that plays a wide variety of musical styles in the Fall and Winter semesters. We invite all experienced players of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments to join the WCCB.

Check out the WCCB photo gallery to explore some of our rich history.


The WCCB comprises select Ferris State University students, admitted by permission of the instructor, and it also includes adult community members and talented young musicians from high school programs from throughout West Central Michigan.
