What a great day at Newmarket’s newly renovated and expanded Old Town Hall that re-opened officially on Thursday, September 22nd. The Hall will no doubt become the cultural hub for the Town as it provides local performers and artists with a place to showcase their talents to the residents of the Town of Newmarket.
An Open House was held on Saturday, September 24th. The Newmarket Citizens’ Band (NCB) which has been the official Town Band since 1872, has a long history of providing entertainment in and around the Newmarket area. The Band played two concerts for residents as part of public tours that were held that day. The audiences were very enthusiastic and enjoyed seeing the band playing once more in the Old Town Hall.
The Band is very excited that this venue is finally available and plans to hold regular concerts throughout the year. To mark this historic occasion, an official photo of the band was taken outside of the Hall after the concert.
NCB embraces the community band concept and welcomes any musician teen aged and older who plays a band instrument to come out to a rehearsal. There are no auditions or waiting lists. For more information about the band and how to join check out our website at http://newmarketcitizensband.ca/
