Richmond Community Concert Band
Richmond Community Concert Band has an extensive history in Richmond.
Formed in 1973 by the then-Branch 5 of the Royal Canadian Legion as “Branch 5 Legion Band ”, we grew rapidly to the present complement of 30 - 40 musicians, with typical concert band instrumentation (reeds, brass and percussion).
Music Director Bob Mullett became our leader in 1978 and is the driving force behind the Band’s continued development and progress.
Branch 5 Legion continued to support the Band until it closed its Westminster Highway location in 2001.
We then became the Richmond Community Band Society, adopting the name “Richmond Legion Community Band” to recognize the organization from which we sprang. From time to time we are also called the Richmond Legion Concert Band, Richmond Legion Community Concert Band and the Richmond Community Concert Band
With musicians from all walks of life, the Band performs a variety of concerts, parades and formal and informal civic functions in Richmond and nearby communities. Here you will see some of our recent performances
