Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band


The Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band: the musical flagship of the Red Deer Community Band Society

Mission Statement The mission of the Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band is to facilitate an environment of musicianship, learning, friendship and mentoring for musicians and colour guard ages 12-21 of Central Alberta and surrounding communities. This band promotes musicianship, leadership, teamwork, community service and pride. The Red Deer Royals have developed into an award-winning band performing and competing for audiences locally and internationally. They are Central Alberta’s only Concert and Marching Show Band.

The Red Deer Royals band program trains young instrumentalists in the performance of traditional and contemporary music in concert, parades and field show. The Red Deer Royals proudly execute the Red Deer Community Band Society’s mandate to promote the City of Red Deer by serving as musical ambassadors for our city, the Province of Alberta and Canada. The Red Deer Royals conduct numerous performances throughout Alberta participating in parades in Red Deer, Calgary, Edmonton, Rocky Mountain House, Sylvan Lake, Canmore, Banff, Caroline, Rimbey, Ponoka, Blackfalds and Lacombe. The Red Deer Royals have performed and competed internationally in Europe, Australia and Malaysia. During the 2011/12 season, the Red Deer Royals performed 8 concerts, 16 parades, 11 standstill performances and 8 field show competitions. They have performed at the World Masters Games, the Canadian Brier, the World Junior Hockey Championships, the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and many other events.


The costs of operating a band of this size and stature are substantial.

The Royals seek your financial support The Sponsorship program of the Red Deer Community Band Society is tailored toward the operations of the Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band. This group is our flagship band and the one with greatest operating costs, yet the band with the greatest visibility in our community and in international venues.

Membership fees are set by the Board, with fundraising opportunities available to the membership to offset the costs of fees, attire, workshop, travel and touring costs. The Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band also maintain an Anonymous Fund to aid those members with financial challenges to remain in the program.

It has been, and will continue to be, the policy of the Red Deer Community Band Society to maintain a membership fee structure that is both affordable and inclusive.

The youth of the Red Deer Royals gratefully appreciate your consideration to financially support their musical endeavours.
