In addition to Stratford members, our band also consists of members from Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Wellesley, Goderich and London. The band has a loyal following in Stratford, regularly drawing several hundred listeners to its weekly summer concerts in Upper Queen’s Park, held every Wednesday in July and August at 7:00 p.m. The band also presents several formal concerts each year, and performs frequently at civic functions in Stratford and the surrounding area. The band’s range of styles is extremely wide. Its concerts feature standards of the concert-band repertory, contemporary works for wind ensemble, arrangements of classic symphonic pieces, popular music, jazz, settings of hymns and other religious works, and, of course, marches. The band’s outdoor summer concerts include “halftime” performances by smaller ensembles drawn from the band’s membership, and it frequently invites guest groups or soloists to perform at formal concerts.
