Welcome to the Brockville Concert Band website!
Make Tuesday your music night in!
After extensive review of public health advice, directives regarding COVID-19,
and available information regarding COVID-19 and playing musical instruments,
it is clear that our regular rehearsals and performances cannot resume at this time.
The BCB Executive Committee has made a decision
to hold Tuesday evening rehearsals using internet Zoom conferencing.
Rehearsals begin at 7:00 pm and follow a 50 min. play /15 min. break / 50 min. play schedule.
Musical Director, Lance Besharah, conducts in-person rehearsals of a small
“Demonstration Band” - volunteer BCB members - under a strict risk mitigation protocol.
The rehearsals are live-streamed to all other BCB members using Zoom.
The rehearsals feel and sound similar to typical rehearsals:
Zoom participants see and hear the conductor with the Demonstration Band,
while playing along (with their audio muted).
There are opportunities to comment and to ask questions.
If you are not already a BCB member, and are interested in joining BCB Zoom rehearsals

The Brockville Concert Band was inducted into the Brockville and Area
Music and Performing Arts Hall of Fame in 2009
and is a member of the Canadian Band Association (Ontario chapter).
