Event Details

The Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Foot Guards will be returning for their fifth concert at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth on Labour Day Sunday, September 1 at 2:00 p.m

The band shares a close connection to the Governor General and provides music for many ceremonies in the Ottawa area, including the annual nationally televised Remembrance Day ceremony held at the National War Memorial. The band is immediately recognizable in their iconic scarlet tunics and bearskin hats.

The band will showcase its different small ensembles from the flute, clarinet, saxophone, and brass sections.  They will also perform “programmatic” music for the entire band: a musical fantasy depicting Godzilla’s attempt to take over Las Vegas, and other exciting tunes from the cinema.  The program will be rounded out with several gorgeous works written by Canadian composers.

Admission to the concert is free, but donations will be welcomed at the door with proceeds to St. Paul’s to cover advertising and promotion.

Celebrate Labour Day Sunday afternoon with the Regimental Band of the Governor General’s Foot Guards, in air-conditioned, accessible and acoustically-pleasing St. Paul’s United Church, 25 Gore Street West in Perth (www.stpaulsperth.ca).
