A part of history
Barrie Concert Band has been an integral part of the amateur music scene in Barrie since 1869 and is considered the oldest music organization in the City of Barrie.
Over the years the band has fulfilled a year-round musical role in Barrie by participating in various city events, presenting regular summer and winter concerts and providing music at local Senior’s Homes and Churches, averaging about 8 concerts per year.
The longevity of the Barrie Concert Band is due to its faithful membership, the City of Barrie’s financial support, sponsors, honoraria from some of their concerts and the loyalty and support of its audiences. This money is used to purchase new music and cover ongoing operating costs.
