About MVCB

The Mesilla Valley Concert Band was founded in 1987 through the joint efforts of Dr. William Clark, Mr. John Schutz, and Mr. Mike White. First called the Mesilla Valley Community Band, the group began with 30 participants who answered an advertisement Dr. Clark placed in the local newspaper.

The concert band has grown to an ensemble of around 100 performers, ranging in age from 18 to 90, with many full-time musicians and music teachers, local business people, educators, retirees, and students. The band also includes players who have progressed through the New Horizons Band under Dr. Clark. 

The band would like to welcome our new director, Dr. Michael Mapp. Dr. Clark has recently passed the baton to Dr. Mapp and plans to continue as a performing musician in the group. Dr. Mapp is currently the Director of Bands at the NMSU Department of Music and is an alumnus of the same program. He looks forward to continuing the MVCB legacy established by Dr. Clark.
