Lex-Ham Community Band

The Lex-Ham Community Band is a volunteer musical ensemble established in 1992 and composed of residents and students who live in the Lexington-Hamline and surrounding neighborhoods of St. Paul, Minnesota. The group is directed by Austin Ertelt.

The group practices on Sunday nights of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Band Room at Concordia University-St. Paul.  The ensemble is open to anyone, young or old, who wants to come to the practices and play in the concerts. The band plays Sousa marches, show tunes, classical concert band pieces, swing jazz, and Dixieland arrangements.  See some of the band's repertoire.
