Welcome to the home of the Peterborough Concert Band!
Now that Ontario is firmly in Step 3 of the Provincial Re-opening Plan, the Peterborough Concert Band (PCB) has resumed in-person rehearsals - we are all very excited to be playing together again! Our COVID safety plan has been approved by Peterborough Public Health, and we enjoyed our first rehearsal since March 2020 on Tuesday, July 27th, 2021. The rain gods gave us a break in the weather at just the right time, so we were able to rehearse outdoors as planned. We are extremely grateful to John Cunningham for inviting us to rehearse at his place of business, the Ashburnham Funeral Home and Reception Centre, on Armour Road. Thank you, John!!
