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.
The first rehearsal of the 2020-2021 season will be on September 22, 2020.
Musical Director, Lance Besharah, will conduct in-person rehearsals of a small
“Demonstration Band” - volunteer BCB members - under a strict risk mitigation protocol.
The rehearsals will be live-streamed to all other BCB members using Zoom.
The rehearsals will feel and sound similar to typical rehearsals:
Zoom participants will see and hear the conductor with the Demonstration Band
while playing along (with their audio muted).
Rehearsals will begin at 7:00 pm and follow a 50 min. play /15 min. break / 50 min. play schedule.
If you are not already a BCB member, and are interested in joining BCB Zoom rehearsals
please email BCB@cogeco.ca

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).
