The Senior Band is a performance level band. The difficulty of the music is at the high school (grade 12) level and up. Admission to this band is based on ability, not age, so there is quite a variety of ages within the group. In addition to the Society’s annual concerts, the Senior Band plays in local festivals and community concerts 2 or 3 times per year. The Senior Band rehearses 2 hours per week, Mondays from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Salvation Army, 325 6th Street, New Westminster.
The Senior Band is conducted by Kevin White
