About Barrie Concert Band

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 Seniors’ 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.

As a non-profit organization, the Barrie Concert Band relies on the generosity of others. Your contributions make it possible for us to share our talents with our community. Musical scores, rehearsal space, Conductor fees and performance venues are just some of the costs associated with running a concert band and by sponsoring the band you will help us succeed.
