About Us

The Hill Country Community Band was formed in 1990 as the Wimberley Community Band.  Due to the rapid growth and expansion of the membership, the band’s name was changed to reflect the diverse membership from all over the central Texas area.

Our members range in age from 15 to 80+. Our concert season is year ’round. We begin rehearsals in the fall and go through the Fourth of July. We take a break for the rest of the summer and then resume rehearsals after Labor Day. At present, we rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 8:30pm at First Baptist Church on Winters Mill Parkway in Wimberley. Please feel free to stop in and listen.

We are always interested in recruiting new members.  If you play or have played a wind or percussion instrument in high school band, you are eligible! Click HERE to complete the contact form and an officer of the band will contact you shortly.

Our Director

The band is led by James Malik, Director of  Bands at Wallace Middle School in Kyle.  He is a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Music and pursued a Masters Degree in Wind Conducting from the University of Oklahoma.  Professional affiliations include the Texas Music Educators Association, the North American Saxophone Alliance, the Texas Bandmasters Association and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
