The Crescent Super Band

Organized in 2001 under the direction of Caleb Chapman, the award-winning Crescent Super Band has frequently been hailed as one of the best professional bands in the world to be comprised entirely of young musicians. The band has been featured at many of the world’s most prominent music festivals including venues in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, and France. The band also has a strong national presence with recent performances in Chicago, Boston, New York, Telluride (Colorado), and Park City (Utah).

In 2010 DownBeat Magazine again recognized the Crescent Super Band with their coveted “Downbeat Award”, marking the band as the best in the country (they also awarded the band this honor in 2007). The band has also won four “Best of State” awards for Utah and the prestigious BOSS Award identifying the band as the top organization in Arts and Entertainment in Utah, beating out every other professional music group for the honor.
