All-City Junior Concert Band
The Junior Concert Band is made up of more than 60 members in their second and third year of playing – mostly grade 9 to 10 students with a few adults involved as well. All the students are enrolled in a Band class at either Porter Creek or F. H. Collins Secondary and are committed to the group for the whole school year!
We rehearse every second Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 pm alternating between PCSS and FH Collins Band rooms. The Directors have made every effort to balance the parts, to play music between grade 2 – 3.5 levels and to keep the musical style varied (from Marches to Musicals, Jazz to Rock). On top of performing at the Yukon Arts Centre in May and in December, this Band usually tours outside the Yukon (late in Spring), performs in 3 local Elementary Schools and twice at the Rotary Music Festival in April, and is very willing to host visiting School / Community Bands.
