The Penticton Concert Band has been together in some form and performing since 1910, when it started off as a marching band. Now a versatile community band, it provides a place for local musicians to share their musical talents within our community and surrounding areas.
The band’s goal is to entertain audiences and enhance the reputation of our beautiful city by professionally representing Penticton. Over the years, the band has performed for a wide variety of occasions – from free public entertainment at local festivals, to trade shows, and ceremonies. Public as well as occasional private performances take place throughout the year and include a variety of musical styles, including traditional concert band music, classical, folk, music of the big band era, and dixieland, as well as tunes from musicals and movie soundtracks. People have always commented on the great variety of music that the band plays in its shows. All programs contain “something for everyone”!
Intermediate to advanced players are welcome to audition. There are weekly practices except during Christmas and over the summer. You can read more about the band on its website: www.pentictonconcertband.ca
