Community Band Ensembles
The Ohlone Bands were founded in 1977 as part of the new Ohlone College Department of Music. Over the years, the Ohlone Community Band grew under the batons of past conductors Phil Zahorsky, Rich Levin and Steve Barnhill. Since Fall, 2007 the Bands have been under the direction of Tony Clements. The Ensembles play a wide variety of symphonic band literature to challenge both the audience and the ensembles.
