Concord Concert Band is comprised of primarily junior music students from Lindisfarne College and Hasting Girls’ High School. It was formed to allow our younger and less experienced players the opportunity to perform with a band and to give them a stepping stone into the senior Concord Symphonic Band. Participating in National and Provincial band festivals is an important part in building skills and confidence levels in these young musicians. This is the thirteenth consecutive National Festival that the band has attended and the ninth under the direction of Mr. Matthew Wood, the H.O.D. Music at Lindisfarne College.
