About Concert Band

 The Sackville Concert Band and the 9AM Band are comprised 100% of talented volunteers of varying ages and musical experiences. We are professional musicians, retired musicians, local music teachers, and ordinary citizens all brought together by our love for making music. Not only do we play instruments, many of our members write and arrange scores for the band; some of us even sing; others help administratively. We play a challenging assortment of music including classical pieces, movie scores, religious/traditional songs, golden oldies, original compositions/arrangements done by band members, and vocal features.
Our mission statement is to bring talented musicians together to perform quality music in support of local non‑commercial events as well as to foster music education in the community. Membership in the band is free.
