A great way to participate on stage or back stage is to contact one of our Partner Groups that best fits your interest.

Canton Concert Band


The Canton Concert Band began in June, 2004, with 8 members, rehearsing at the Cherry Hill Village School. Now, as the resident concert band of the Village Theater at Cherry Hill, they have nearly 60 members. They are a group of volunteers from various backgrounds, and from all over the Metro Detroit area. Their experience levels range from novice players to professional musicians. All are welcome. We especially need oboe, bassoon, tuba, lower brass, and percussion. There are NO auditions!

Rehearsing every Thursday night at 7 pm in the Biltmore Studio at the Village Theater, the Canton Concert Band performs two concerts a year at the theater, and at numerous other functions throughout the community.

Participating in the band has been a great way to meet new friends, as well as pursue their mutual love of music.

Interested in playing?

Visit their websiteFacebook page, or email their director, Jim Blough.
