In 2015-16, the Barrie Concert Band participated in artsVest sponsorship training modules with other local cultural groups. The group received instructional resources to promote sponsorship agreements that mutually benefit Sponsors and audience alike.
We are pleased to announce two new Sponsors, the National Bank of Canada and the New Classical 102.9 FM, starting with the promotion of our June 11, 2016 Gershwin concert. Thanks to them, we qualified for an equivalent grant courtesy of the artsVest program run by Business for the Arts and supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The awards celebration for participating Barrie groups will be held on June 14, 2016. The Barrie Concert Band thanks everyone responsible for their generous support and looks forward to building on its long-term relationships within in the community.

For the past couple of years we have been helping to raise resources and funds for two food banks. You can help out by attending one of two concerts this year.
Our first event is at the Army, Navy, and Air Force (ANAF) Club on Tuesday, November 5, representing the Barrie area, and the second event is at the Lighthouse Community Church in Wasaga Beach.
We hope you can attend one of these free events and make an equivalent contribution that would normally be charged. Thanks!
