Band Stand by Merlin

Band Stand by Merlin Williams · Here it is! WholeNote's Fifth Annual Survey of Community and Concert Bands The very first list I compiled, in October of 1999, had but seventeen groups listed. The list now nur~bers over forty, from all over South~m Ontario .. Please note that some bands do have auditions for ~ro~pective membe_rs., The Youth Bands generally have an upper age hm1t of 16-18. I have mcluded some Military & Police Bands this year, since membership in the organizations.-themselves is not a · prerequisite for playing in the band. Brass Bands and Silver Bands utilise only comets, flugelhorn, alto horns, baritone horns, euphoniums, trombones, tuba and percussion.
