A Virtual Christmas Concert!

Hear now, for your seasonal enjoyment, some selected moments recorded over our 2010 Christmas concert season, our present to you with our best wishes for you and yours on this Holiday and on into 2011! 


Thank you for all your kind support at our concert shows and parades (keep those cards and letters coming in! And please do 'Like' our Facebook page too!!) and should someone give you the gift of music making this year, remember, our rehearsals start up again in January; for over 85 years, there's been no better way to express our scenic city civic pride and community spirit than through our very own Owen Sound City Band!

Heritage Place Concert Cancelled

Regrettably we've had to cancel tonight's Christmas concert at the Heritage Place Mall; such is the sometimes reality of  Old Man Winter in our Georgian Triangle neighbourhood, the schools are closed, the transit is stopped, driveways are walled by ice and the highways are in a word, treacherous, all of which is a good excuse to curl up at home around a warm fire with a hot beverage and a good book, and just wait it out.

Heritage Place Dec 13 7:30pm

What.  They think a little bit of snow is going to stop the City Band? If the roads allow, we'll be there, or as many as who can, and here's a little hint of the music you can expect.

The Owen Sound City Band will be in on the 71st Annual CFOS Children's Fund Broadcast taking the Roxy stage from 1:10pm to 1:30pm playing one or more of these Christmas concert charts (if you pledge in advance enough, you can request your favourite!)

This will be a live broadcast and the public is invited to drop by the Roxy to watch the show live in that grand old vaudeville theatre atmosphere; fans in the Georgian Bay area can tune in to 560 on the AM dial and anyone anywhere can catch us on the live stream www.560cfos.ca


Christmas Fund Broadcast


Donate now by phone - 519-376-2250

The 71ST ANNUAL Christmas Fund Broadcast is December 5th, 2010 at the Roxy Theatre in Owen Sound.

The Christmas Fund Broadcast has supported numerous charities around our listening area for decades thanks to the generous donations of people like you.

This year, the first $8000 raised by the broadcast will be used to purchase 4 sleep chairs for the pediatric department at the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre.  These chairs are designed to make it easier for parents to stay with very sick children.

The remaining funds raised will be dispersed evenly amongst the charities listed on our event page.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause in advance, please contact the Christmas Fund Broadcast at 519-376-2250.
