After receiving a substantial Trillium Foundation Grant in the fall of 2012, the Oakville Army Cadets formed a Brass and Reed Marching Band. The band is open to all cadets regardless of experience. The band had its debut performance at our 2013 Annual Review and anticipates regular performances at public venues each and every training year.
Several Army cadet band members from our unit attended the Music School located at the Blackdown Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. This music program forms part of the Optional Training for cadets and provides cadets with very high calibre musical training at no cost to parents. This exceptional training compliments music education provided at schools and is invaluable for any young musician considering to pursue music, for pleasure or as a career.
