Aleppo Shriners Brass Band
Organized 1915


To provide musical support at Ceremonials, Parades, and Activities promoting the Hospital and the Shrine


Organized in 1915 as a Fife & Drum Corps, a brass section was added in 1916 and the Band has since evolved from a marching band to a current concert ensemble and parade riding band. For Aleppo Shrine Tour of Duty parades, we are part of the Aleppo parade structure of 16 Aleppo Shrine Units which creates a parade section nearly a quarter of a mile long.

Having been in hundreds of parades over the years, the Band promotes the Shrine in general and Aleppo in particular. This award winning band participates in regional and national shrine events whenever possible

What's In it For Me?

Fun with music. If you ever played in a band, you remember all the fun of performing, the camaraderie of fellow musicians and the sound of applause.

Opportunities to use your musical training are getting fewer. Here's a way to sharpen your skills and enjoy good fellowship.

Since the Aleppo Shrine Band builds Shrine and Masonic awareness with each performance, here is an active way to promote our great fraternity.

The Aleppo Band also receives invitations to participate in community parades. This participation raises money to support the Shrine Hospital system and the Aleppo Hospital transportation Fund.

If you are a musician, consider joining us.
