Perth Citizen’s Band Concert

 

A series of Summer Pops Concerts at the Perth Legion that continues on throughout the summer! All concerts are FREE to the public and are held in historic Stewart Park just behind the Perth Town Hall.

The Perth Citizens’ Band has been an integral part of the musical and cultural heritage of the Town of Perth since 1852 and is the oldest continuously operating band in Canada. The continuity of the band from 1852 has been recorded in a book entitled, “ Sound the Trumpet “ written by local archivist, Daphne Overhill, published in 2002.

The free concerts in Stewart Park are performed every other Thursday at 7:30 PM starting in the second week of June through the third week of August and include a Strawberry Social starting at 7 PM for the second concert. The band does a number of parades throughout the year including the Perth Fair Parade, parades for various local celebrations in other towns and typically four Santa Claus Parades in various towns. A major part of the bands funding for operating expenses comes from these parades. The band also does an annual Christmas concert, an annual “ Last Night At The Proms Concert ” plus a number of other concerts during each year.

Sunday, November 20th, 2016, at 3 pm, the Bells of St. Paul’s, ringing joyfully for 24 years, will be presenting a concert at St. Paul’s United Church”.

Each year of the handbell choir’s existence, handbell music and handbell musicians have been changing and developing. Sharing these developments in a concert is indeed a joy.

For one thing, handbell music is no longer limited to church music. Several composers now write music specifically for this beautiful instrument. The concert program will include sizzling, jazzy, and swingy selections, sensitive and expressive melodies, and a few surprises!The techniques employed in bringing the music to life have greatly expanded beyondjust ringing.  And, in addition to being more interesting for audiences, the new music and new techniques have attracted a high caliber of musicians.
