The 7th Annual WholeNote

The 7th Annual WholeNote Bandstand Listing of Community Bands! Here it is - the 7th Annual WholeNote Listing of Community Bands! To the best of my knowledge, this is the most complete list of bands in Southern Ontario you'll find in one place. The list is in order of rehearsal day, starting with Monday. It's wise to make contact by phone or email before heading out to a rehearsal, just in case the group you're interested in has an upcoming event. If you find your band's listing is incorrect, forward the info to me at and I'll do an update in the November issue. I have dropped a couple of bands from the list this year. One, because I know first hand that it's gone; another one because the e-mail, website and phone contact were all dead ends. I've had some requests from community big bands this summer to be added to this list. There's barely enough room to get the concert bands in this issue, so you have an extra month to get me info. I'll include it in my October Bandstand column.
