On September 3, 2019 the band welcomed Angelik Jones as the new Musical Director of the Barrie Concert Band! This is exciting news for the Barrie Concert Band’s 150-year history, as Ms. Jones will not only be our 32nd Music Director of the band, she will also have the distinction of being the first female Music Director of the Barrie Concert Band!

She is the Assistant Conductor with the Royal Regiment of Canada military and has also been a member of the Ceremonial Guard Band in Ottawa at Parliament Hill.
