The Nepean Concert Band (NCB) was established in 1975, starting as a secondary school night course and eventually developing into one of Ottawa’s premier community concert bands. Under the current direction of Terry Duncan, the NCB boasts a membership of approximately sixty volunteer musicians from all walks of life who meet weekly to rehearse a diverse repertoire ranging from the classic concert band repertoire and classical transcriptions to popular music and themes from movies and television shows.
In addition to its annual concert series of three themed concerts, the band presents free bi-weekly concerts during the summer at Andrew Haydon Park. As part of its community outreach, the band also performs at retirement homes and at special events. The NCB is also a regular participant at the annual Lake George Community Band Festival in Lake George, New York. The NCB is planning a special programme for Ottawa Comiccon which will include a variety of compositions in line with the event’s sci-fi, fantasy, superhero and space themes.
