2020 Summer Concert Schedule is Cancelled
It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the Marshall’s Band board has decided to cancel our 2020 summer concerts due to the COVID-19 health risks. There was much discussion among the board members and with representatives from the Shawnee County Parks and Recreation department. And even though there are steps in place to slowly move back toward normalcy, we did not want to risk the health of any of our band members or concert going patrons. As a very good friend has posted almost daily on social media, “We are one day closer to the end of this pandemic.”
I wish you all health and safety as we move through this. We look forward to the summer of 2021 when we can come together and make music again.

Marshall's Band Endures
The members of Marshall's Civic Band would like to thank Topeka Parks and Recreation for their support of the summer concert series.
For more than 125 years, Marshall's Civic Band has brought music to Topeka's summer evenings. A Sunday concert in the park has given parents an excuse to plan a picnic and an opportunity for children to populate the swings and jungle gyms.
The concerts are a chance to see old friends and enjoy a cool drink and maybe some popcorn.
Marshall's Civic Band helped Topekans see hope through the Great Depression, the two world wars and some of the hottest days summer could throw at us.
Families have made the band's Sunday evening concerts a tradition to pass down to their children. The concerts also bring in visitors from outside Topeka to sample our dining and buy from our stores.
Marshall's Civic Band has brought the Topeka community together every summer since 1884. And it is because of support from the city and its residents that the band continues.
Marshall's Band is a community value we all can uphold.
