Saint Mary’s Band: Concert on the Green Series
August 26, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Saint Mary’s Band is a community-based brass/reed band under the direction of Jon Fisher. The band was formed in 1903 as a youth outreach program. It provided music services to Saint John until 1917 when 2/3 of its members enlisted and went overseas. In England they became the first brass band of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and is the ONLY Canadian band to have played for a royal wedding, that of Princess Patricia. The members range in age from mid-teens to late eighties and include a wide range of occupations, ethnic backgrounds and social diversity. Saint Mary’s Band is a charitable organization. Their focus is public music performances and supporting Symphony NB and school music programs.
