Deep River Community Band
The objective of the Deep River Community Band is to provide a venue for the practice and performance of band music for residents of the Deep River area. The Deep River Community Band is organized as a unit of the Deep River Community Association.
Membership in the Band is open to all interested residents of the community at an annual fee (currently $40 for adults, $10 for students).
The Band usually begins the new season of rehearsals in September when Mackenzie Community School begins the new year, since rehearsals are in the music room of Mackenzie.
We are not a marching band, but we present two concerts per year, one before Christmas and one in May (usually on Mother's Day). Performances are at the Deep River Legion which is usually filled with an appreciative audience. The music director chooses music of various styles and level of difficulty so as not to discourage players with less experience but still provide interest for the more experienced. In 2017 for the July 1 Canada 150 celebration on the Deep River campus, the Band played a short program of music with Canadian connections.
