Who We Are
pcb-about

THE PENTICTON CONCERT BAND

We are music performers. Welcome to our website, let us show you who we are.

Music is unlike any creative expression on Earth. It’s a spellbinding art that motivates the emotions of sound. Since its infancy music has nurtured the broadest senses of our human experience. From the early compositions of recorded notation in the 1400’s,  to social rebellion in the 20th century, it has liberated our behavioural reasoning in so many ways. In the city of Penticton, our official music tradition goes back more than a hundred years. Within our local manifest of time, the Penticton Concert Band has undergone many different forms of conception. Over the years, and in its future, this very band will grow within a continuum of perpetual evolution. It’s a dynamic momentum driven by people from all walks of life, a contribution of creative energy shared with our outlying communities and local music venues. It takes a clear level of commitment, practice, and dedication to evoke the feeling of excellence within our audience. Within us, music rehearses the stage. Music is a connection.

A WORD FROM OUR DIRECTOR

Music is a performing art meant to be shared with others. The Penticton Concert Band gives local musicians an opportunity to play in an organized setting that allows the sharing of music between ourselves in rehearsal and then once polished, with the rest of the community in concert performances. The band consists of community members from all ages and walks of life. We all started playing our instrument in a school band setting when we were young. The love of music and the commonality of each of us playing a band instrument brings us together to share this passion. As a music director, my job is to teach, encourage and support the musicians in a positive environment that allows us to explore various genres and styles that challenges us and brings joy to the band and audiences.
