 FEATURED ENSEMBLE

OSHAWA CIVIC BAND

The Oshawa Civic Band is the result of the amalgamation of two bands in 1920 - the Regimental Band of the 34th Ontario Regiment, a traditional Military Brass band, having been raised in 1866 at the time of The Regiment, and from the Town Band formed in 1870 later known as the Oshawa Citizens Band. After the amalgamation it was known as The Oshawa Regimental and Civic Band. By 1968, The Ontario Regiment lost its capability of having a Military Band, but many of the members continued to play with the newly named Oshawa Civic Band.

Over time the Band evolved into its current configuration of a traditional "British" brass band, which means that all parts, except for the bass trombone and percussion, are in treble clef, and the instrumentation is made up of Eb Soprano Cornet, Solo, 1st/Repiano, 2nd and 3rd Bb Cornets, Bb Flugel Horn, Solo, 1st and 2nd Eb Tenor Horns, 1st and 2nd Baritones, Euphonium, 1st and 2nd (Tenor) Trombones, Bass Trombone, EEb and BBb bass and percussion.

 FEatured REPERTOIRE

SWIFTRIVER PASSAGE BY: PAUL SUCHAN
Wind Orchestra

This is a work that explores the stages of the grieving process. For many people these four stages are not segregated, but rather form a continuous, dynamic, overlapping process. The opening motif heard in the clarinet in the first measure is the thread connecting every section of the work. This thread evolves as it makes its way through the four respective stages. Powerful and ethereal.
