Instrumentation

Mississauga Pops Concert Band plays music scored for the following instruments: flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet, alto clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, French horn, euphonium/baritone horn, tuba, string bass, mallets, and percussion.

Mississauga Pops could be for you if:

  • you are an adult amateur or semi-professional musician who plays one or more of the above instruments, and you live in the Mississauga area
  • you enjoy a relaxed, fun rehearsal atmosphere, but you can get serious, too
  • you've got a high standard of playing and typically have played post secondary school
  • you can sight-read quite well, and enjoy very challenging concert band material (we are not a beginner band!), but are not put off by less-meaty "crowd-pleasers" either. more about music
  • your idea of good fun includes going out to raise a glass with band buddies after rehearsals and concerts (optional, but we enjoy an excellent participation rate)

Some obligations

  • annual membership dues: $120 for 2015-2016 ($60 for full-time students)
  • summer uniform: khaki-coloured pants, acquire crested black golf shirt from band
  • winter uniform: ladies - all black; gents - as announced: either black suit, white dress shirt, and black bow tie; or all black
  • fundraising: work at a Bingo hall on Saturday night about twice annually
  • time commitment: in addition to at-home practice time, there are year-round rehearsals and concerts, and occasional week-end band trips. We seldom break for holidays - can't get enough band!
