Start date: 16 September, 2017
End date: 17 September, 2017
We are presenting a weekend of music in Victoria Park, London, Ontario with 12 bands and 250 musicians, featuring different genres including concert, brass, swing, jazz, and Dixieland bands. During 2017 many of our bands will include their regular concert as part of the Bands 150 program.
Nature of the Project Reach
We hope to reach families, visitors to London, and those interested in the breadth of music available in the London area. We will introduce the audience to The London and Middlesex United Way who support essential services in our community.
We expect many people to come to the park to enjoy the music and to learn about the long history of band music as well as the breadth of musical talent in the London and area. We will honour the many musicians who have contributed to music in our city and who have provided music education in the schools and at Western University. In addition we will partner with The London and Middlesex United Way to help them begin their annual campaign.
