The Kincardine Community Concert Band will be resuming regular practices, every Wednesday at 7pm, starting September 27, 2017. We practice at the Grace Luthern Church, 5798 Highway #9, Kincardine Ontario. The church is about a 5 minute drive east of the town of Kincardine.
This fall, we’ll be practicing mostly Christmas music. We have plans to play concerts to two local seniors’ residences, a concert at the Kincardine Legion, several parades, and a public Christmas concert on December 3, 2017
This is an excellent time of year for new members to join us. We welcome musicians of all ages and abilities, no audition required.
