Engaging the Band for an Event
The Peterborough Concert Band performs at a wide variety of venues and events in Peterborough, the Kawartha Lakes, and surrounding area. Our music ranges from contemporary popular pieces like “Music from Glee” and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” to medleys of Broadway show tunes, to classical gems like Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro”. If you are planning an event in our area, and would like to include musical entertainment for your guests, please contact us. We would love to play for you!
Joining the Band
The Peterborough Concert Band is a 40+ member ensemble that rehearses in Peterborough on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 pm (check out our Event Calendar under What's Happening). Candidate players are auditioned for a seat in the band using material that is about equivalent to the Royal Conservatory of Music Grade 5 level. If you have woodwind, brass or percussion experience and would enjoy sharing your love of music at community events, please contact us. On the Contact Us form, tell us what instrument you play. Our Communications Officer will forward your note to the appropirate Section Leader and to the Music Director for follow-up. When you have scheduled your audition, the audition material will be emailed to you so you have as much time to prepare it as you want. Our objective is to keep auditions brief, informal, and as low-key as possible!
