K-W Multicultural Festival Mainstage Performer: Kitchener Musical Society Band

Today, some four-dozen dedicated woodwind, reed, brass and percussion players — men and women, teens through seniors — make up the current Kitchener Musical Society Band. We've come a long way from turn-of-the-century military marches; now we do everything from Bach to Bernstein, from classical symphonies to hot jazz and latin beat, from Hymns to Hoagy Carmichael, from ragtime to rock-and-roll.
