Perth Citizens' Band Outdoor Concert at Stewart Park

Aug 17

|

Jun 8 (& 22 at 7pm at Strawberry Social), Jul 6 & 20, Aug 3 & 17.

The Perth Citizens' Band, Canada’s oldest continuing town band, is preparing for the 2017 season of its annual Summer Pops Concert Series. As we mark Canada’s 150th anniversary, it’s interesting to note that the Perth Citizens’ Band has been a part of the celebrations since Confederation. The band dates back to the 1850s, and performed at Perth’s first Canada Day in 1867, as well as at various other notable celebrations up to the present. Much of the music played in the past, along with photos and antique instruments, is still in the band’s collection to this day. The Summer Pops Concerts in the park have been a long tradition. All concerts are held at the bandstand located in Stewart Park, directly behind the Town Hall, in historic downtown Perth, and are free to the public. Concerts feature a variety of music ranging from classical to Broadway and movie themes, as well as jazz, blues, and other popular forms; a bit of music for all tastes and ages. In addition, conductor Brian Tackaberry includes heritage pieces from the band’s historic files as well as songs by Canadian composers or arrangers, as part of the Canada 150 Celebrations.

All concerts begin at 7:30pm, except the one on June 22, which begins at 7pm and is held in conjunction with the Strawberry Social sponsored by the Perth Rotary Club. Audience members are invited to bring along a lawn chair or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park during the performances.

Aug 3 & 17. Bring lawn chair or stroll park.
