Help Spread the Music!

You can help the Gloucester Community Concert Band share musical experiences in the community by donating to us today!

The Gloucester Community concert Band (GCCB) is a registered charity and functions on the donations from people like you!

The GCCB has a colourful 30-year history in Ottawa East. GCCB had its beginnings as the Rothwell Youth Band in the mid-70s. With the encouragement of the mayor of the former City of Gloucester, Mr. Harry Allen, the band evolved to become the Gloucester Stage Band, and later the GCCB.

The GCCB is a volunteer-based organization that performs primarily in the Ottawa region as a charitable community service. The band appeals to musicians who enjoy the thrill of performing eclectic music in a full size ensemble for appreciative audiences. The band repertoire includes selections of Broadway, feature movies, big band, and classical and American standards. The GCCB, a registered charity since 1987, regularly performs at senior citizen residences and various community events, and annually hosts two concerts – one at Christmas and one to welcome Spring.

Band Objective
“The goal of the GCCB is to provide amateur musicians with a lifelong opportunity to pursue musical interests developed in high school while also fulfilling a need in the community for music education, expression, and growth.”
