The Lambton Concert Band, a volunteer group of local musicians, continue to practice for what will certainly be a joyous upcoming celebration of music in the tradition of music in Sarnia-Lambton.
The concert, Century Tunes, will take place Thursday, October 30 at the Sarnia Public Library Auditorium beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for the concert are $12 for adults, $6 for children and students and are available from your favourite member, at the door or by e-mailing [email protected]
The group is maintaining a strong tradition established by many great ensembles in the past, including the Bluewater Symphonic Band, the Sarnia Citizens’ Band, the Petrolia Music Makers, the Petrolia White Rose Band, and the Forest Excelsior Band to name a few.
The Lambton Concert Band is comprised of members of the community who travel from various areas of the county to play together. Members range from students currently studying music in their respective secondary schools to retired members of the community.
The group has provided opportunity for younger people of the community to learn in a more demanding situation and allowed its older members to share their experience and knowledge.
The non-profit organization uses concert revenues to cover expenses, buy scores and equipment for the band, and contribute to the musical activities within the community. All musicians involved, including the Executive and Musical Directors, do so on a volunteer basis.
The Century Tunes concert will also feature a curated collection of historic photos and memorabilia of Lambton County Concert Bands by Norm Sutherland.
