The Naples Big Band entertains the public with dynamic Big Band performances in styles spanning the swing era to the modern day, while also nurturing the musical development of local youths with our financial support.
With a 20-year history of delivering dynamic public and private performances, the Naples Big Band is reaching new heights musically and philanthropically.
Packed with professional players, the band is directed by renowned trumpeter and flugelhornist, James Castaldi. His devotion and understanding of the music have resulted in growing audiences and an expansion of the number of shows and venues we perform at.
The band has always supported music education in our local schools with substantial monetary aid. Though the awards have grown, we had a desire to do more.
We undertook the challenge and over the past five years, the band has worked to cultivate relationships with music directors in Collier and Lee County schools. One exciting result of this cooperation has provided students with the unique opportunity to play with the band at a live performance.
