The NCB is a provincially-registered non-profit organization and depends upon membership fees, concert revenue, and sponsorship from patrons in the public and private sectors, to pay for the necessities such as conductor's honorarium, rehearsal space rental, equipment maintenance and the purchase of quality concert band arrangements.
The NEPEAN CONCERT BAND, INC. (NCB) has provided musical entertainment in the National Capital since 1975, when it began as a night-class offered by the Carleton Board of Education. The NCB's current membership comprises 60 volunteer musicians who enjoy playing classical, blues, marches, big-band, Broadway/Film/TV and contemporary concert band selections.
Formal concerts are performed throughout the year and the NCB presents a bi-weekly "Summer Sounds" series (at Andrew Haydon Park), alternating Wednesday evenings, from June to August.
You can often catch the band at community and civic events within the Ottawa region and numerous Senior Citizens' Residences.
