The Gower Community Band, a non-denominational community service outreach initiative established and maintained by Gower Street United Church in St. John’s, NL, is an open concert band program providing opportunities for musical training and skills development, performance in support of community causes, scholarships for promising musicians, and fellowship for its diverse membership. The Band performs between 12-15 times per year, including full band events and smaller ensemble performances which allow members to accommodate band commitments in busy work and family obligations.

A special focus is the GCB Seniors’ Shows, which provides an ongoing popular performance program of “concerts for people who can’t get out to concerts.” The present intergenerational band is the inheritor of a legacy of music and service which began in 1973 with the establishment of the Gower Youth Band program, an honoured institution in the Newfoundland musical community. Band instrumentalists of all ages who love music and are committed to community service are warmly welcomed into the GCB.
