ESCB Raises Funds to Operate Instrumental Music in Schools
The El Segundo Concert Band (ESCB) is a community organization in El Segundo that does more than just operate a community concert band. It is also the main instrumental band music program operator for the El Segundo Unified School District.

This is in addition to its original purpose, which was to be a community band where adults and students could enjoy performing music in concert and at community events.
