Passing of Muriel Ivy White

It is with deep sadness we inform you of the passing or our band Mom Muriel Ivy White.
Muriel White was the wife of the late Roland White, our director of music emeritus, who laid down the musical foundation of what we are today. Roland moulded the musical aspects of our band, but Muriel moulded our band family.  We referred to her as our band mother.
Muriel was “Promoted to Glory”  peacefully on July 5th, 2019 at the Victoria Retirement residence in Cobourg Ontario.
We are very thankful to the staff at the residence for the outstanding care and love they gave her over her final days.
Originally from Brighton, England, she loved the sea. The name “Muriel” is of Irish origin and means “of the bright seas.”
As per Muriel’s wishes, a memorial service will be held at The Salvation Army Community Church in Cobourg on Wednesday July 24th at 2 pm.
Rest in peace Muriel……we will be forever indebted to you.

New Recording “Pride of Performance” Release

We are very please and excited to announce the release of our latest recording “Pride of Performance”.

The release took place on Tuesday July 4th, 2017 at our first concert of the 2017 Summer Season in Victoria Park Bandshell, Cobourg.

In 2017, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday, and The Concert Band of Cobourg celebrated 175 years of bringing music to the Town of Cobourg.
The Band is a rich part of our everyday life and we chose this opportunity to honour the many great musicians, composers, and arrangers who live among us and who contribute so much to our community.  Every song on this special CD represents either an original arrangement or an original musical creation from one of our talented local contributors.  Each of them has made it possible for the Band to share our music and to feature many soloists from within our ranks. The Band motto is “Pride of Performance” and we hope you share the pride we all have in Cobourg and in the many skilled and generous people who make this such a special part of Canada.
Thanks to Cobourg 2017 for their financial support and for helping to make this CD possible.

CD’s will be available for purchase at a cost of $20.00 ea.
