Some archival photos of original planning and board meetings, concerts and history


Herald Dec 24 1986- announced first LCBS REHEARSAL - Click the link. It all started on January 22, 1987. Since that time the LCBS has filled the need for opportunity to revisit, renew and build the talents and passion of musicians of all ages. Our list of talented conductors and musicians over the years is extensive, as are the many and varied performances.


2022 will mark the 35th year since the beginnings of the LCBS and despite the very difficult obstacles presented by Covid 19, we will continue to celebrate music in whatever means we can. To the right of this message is a collection of some of the posters of concerts past. If you have copies of an old poster that you would like to add to this collection send a .jpg image of it to info@lcbs.ca and we will add it to our slide presentation.


As well we present some of the more memorable pictures of our bands in performance rehearsal and some of our guest conductors.
