We have some very exciting new material that we'll be working on, including many classics and contemporary works. As well, we're proud to be featuring a number of up and coming Canadian composers.

Would you or someone you know, like to join the award-winning Newmarket Citizens' Band?

Did you play long ago in high school, college or university? This is the perfect opportunity to get back into playing some great tunes with a very friendly group.

We're committed to the community band concept, providing an opportunity for community musicians of all levels of experience to make music and improve their skills, in a supportive and relaxed atmosphere.

In a recent exploration of the band's archives, they found a photograph of the band taken in the year 1883.
