The Valley Concert Band got its start in 1990 with five members. They slowly grew in numbers with Saundra Lake joining as conductor in 1993. The band has performed at strawberry socials, parades, Fall Fairs, Remembrance Day Services, park concerts, seniors homes, community dinners, and fundraisers. In September of 2013, after twenty years, Saundra decided to retire and pass her baton on to Linda Skeries, a retired elementary school music teacher and recent Collingwood resident. The 20 member band, now know as the Beaver Valley Concert Band, welcomes any new members who play a brass or woodwind instrument and would love to play a variety of music from Classical to marches to show tunes and everything in between. Our band members come from Meaford to Wasaga Beach and points in between.
