Join the Band

Would You Like To Join?

The Newmarket Citizens Band (NCB) is 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.

The NCB welcomes anyone teenaged and older who can read music and play a band instrument. There are no auditions or waiting lists. We present two formal concerts annually, participate in a number of local civic engagements and perform by invitation at events in other communities outside of Newmarket.

Although Newmarket is our home base, we have members from all over York Region and surrounding areas. So joining the NCB is easy – just show up at a rehearsal!  An annual membership fee applies but you may attend two (2) rehearsals before deciding to formally join the Band.

Summer Memberships

The Band offers a summer membership.  Keep up your performance skills and enjoy playing a wide variety of music in a welcoming and relaxing environment.  Try us out for 1 rehearsal and, if you want to stay all summer, the membership fee is only $30.

We play at a number of concerts and other open air events throughout the summer.  It’s a great way for student musicians to get a jump start for the fall semester.

Rehearsal Information

We rehearse every Tuesday night (7:45 p.m. SHARP) at Lounge # 1 at the Ray Twinney  Recreational Complex, 100 Eagle St W., Newmarket, ON L3Y 1J4. (Note: Lounge # 1 is located on the south side of the complex.)  Please arrive early enough to set up your equipment and warm up your instrument before rehearsal starts.
