Welcome to the Brockville Concert Band website!

 

Make Tuesday your music night out!

 

If you enjoy playing a concert band instrument,

you are welcome to join us at any rehearsal -

to play, or even just to listen.

 

BCB rehearsals take place Tuesdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

 

Rehearsal location: We are moving! PLEASE NOTE CAREFULLY –

Drive into the large parking lot from Ormond Street, and enter the building via the door facing Ormond Street.

If you need to use the accessible building entrance – use the smaller parking lot on the north side of the building,
