About Us

We are a Community

We are a non-professional community band comprised of members from all walks of life, ranging in age from 16 to 85. We play a variety of music and give performances throughout the academic year, including the IWK Kermesse, Saint Patrick’s Church fundraiser, and Remembrance Day, as well as a Christmas and a Spring concert. In recent years we have entered the Kiwanis Music Festival and have been awarded gold in our class.
