The Citizens Band plays the new Sackville bandstand Thurs. August 27th at 6:30pm. The bandstand is at Bill Johnstone Memorial Park, 70 Main Street. Admission is free: dancing is encouraged but not required.
Here’s a recording of the first piece at our June 17th Spring concert:
This Wednesday, June 17th, the Sackville Citizens Band presents “From the Top”, a night of musical variety including show tunes, classical favourites, rock, swing, and “Sounds of Silence” like you’ve never head it before. The concert begins at 7:30pm in the Brunton Auditorium of Mount Allison University’s Bell Conservatory of Music, and it features two solo performances.
Admission is by freewill offering.
The Citizens Band will play a three-piece set as part of a benefit concert on Sunday, January 18 at 3 pm. This concert is in support of the 2015 Sackville Music Festival and will take place at the Brunton Auditorium of the Mount Allison Conservatory of Music, 134 Main Street, Sackville, NB.
If you played a band instrument at a high-school (or better!) level and would like to rebuild your skills in a fun, supportive environment playing fine and varied music, the Sackville Citizens Band welcomes you! We meet every Wed. at 7-9pm in the basement of Marshview Middle School.
Any time of year is a good time to join this 20+-piece ensemble that comprises musicians from their teens to their eighties.
Enjoying the the inspiring confines of the Mount Allison Chapel for a second consecutive year, the 19-piece Citizens Band performed a 2 hour program of Christmas favourites, Classics, and lots in-between. An extensive medley from The Sound of Music and a Flute Rhapsody featuring Anne Varner rounded out the first half. After the intermission, the band was pleased to perform Highlight from Frozen for the first time, after which Don Short offered a saxophone solo on White Christmas. “Nimrod” from Elgar’s Enigma Variations — another first for the band — provided an encore.
