The Nepean Concert Band was also part of Navan’s Music in the Park series in 2019. Evolving from its origins as a secondary school night course, the Nepean Concert Band (NCB) has performed for residents of the National Capital Region for close to five decades. During the summer, the band presents a bi-weekly “Summer Sounds” series at Andrew Haydon Park from early-June to mid-August, and performs formal concerts at City View United Church in the fall, at Christmas, and in the spring. The NCB also performs at civic events and seniors’ residences throughout the year.
Currently under the direction of Terry Duncan, the band has expanded its membership to approximately 55 volunteer musicians, from all walks of life. The NCB musicians enjoy playing a diverse repertoire which might include marches, popular fare such as folk, Big Band and Broadway selections, classical transcriptions and contemporary titles written expressly for wind ensemble.
Terry Duncan has been directing the NCB since 2004. Terry is a music teacher at Woodroffe High School in Ottawa where he conducts the Wind Ensemble, the Symphonic Band, the Stage Band, and directs musical theatre productions. Terry is active in local theatre productions and has served as Musical Director for the Orpheus Musical Theatre in addition to on-stage roles.
The NCB is a provincially-registered non-profit organization and depends upon membership fees, concert revenue, and sponsorship from patrons, to pay for necessities such as rental of rehearsal space, equipment maintenance and renewal and the purchase of quality repertoire.
