The Greater Windsor Concert Band
Windsor, Ontario, Canada
Bringing live music to Windsor-Essex since 1997
In 2011, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southwestern Ontario celebrated 25 years of wish granting to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
For their main event in Windsor, we performed a concert titled "Blue Rhapsody," which featured guest pianist Alde Calongcagong and clarinetist Trevor Pittman and brought to the audience George Gershwin’s timeless favourite "Rhapsody In Blue."
The afternoon concert was a chance to celebrate, recognize and thank all the work done by Make-A-Wish in the community and allowed the GWCB to uniquely "share the power of a wish."
The Greater Windsor Concert Band is a community group of musicians dedicated to bringing wind band and concert band music into our community. We give musicians of all ages and walks of life a place to practice their instruments in an ensemble setting and offer many chances to perform live in front of audiences.
Generally we perform a formal indoor spring concert, a series of outdoor park concerts in the summer time, a formal fall concert, and a cabaret style Christmas concert each year.
Although Covid safeguards have precluded some of these events as of late, we continue to find fun and exciting ways to continue playing and to continue bringing music into the Windsor/Essex County region.
The GWCB has recorded a few tunes virtually, we have a YouTube presence, and even some fun TikToks!
