The Codiac Concert Band / Harmonie Codiac Inc. (Codiac Concert Band) was founded in 2003 and is a Canadian registered charity (Charitable Registration No. 82318 3736 RR0001). Its membership consists of over 30 amateur and semi-professional musicians performing a variety of musical styles in concerts throughout the Metro Moncton area and beyond. The band is based in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.
The group provides a forum for local musicians to express and develop their musical interests, while also promoting the educational, musical and cultural values of concert bands and concert band music. The purpose of the band is to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing high-quality public performances of concert band music and by providing free performances for audiences that may not be able to attend regular performances. Its members believe in the importance of future generations of local musicians and in giving back to the community.
Members of the Codiac Concert Band represent the diversity of the Greater-Moncton area and beyond. We are very proud to be formed of semi-professional musicians, amateur musicians and students, members who vary in age from 14 to 80. Whether you are Francophone, Anglophone or have just recently moved to the area, music is the language common to us all and we hope you too will consider performing with us and recognize the value of concert band music.
The Codiac Concert Band was founded in 2003 when musicians from the Riverview Concert Band and the Moncton District Services Concert Band merged and formed one bigger regional band. The Concert Band in Riverview had been in operation for approximately 10 years. The Moncton Concert Band traces its history to several concert bands that had existed in the city during the past 100 years.
