Past WVYB Tours

The Symphonic Band has gone on a number of tours to Europe and Hawaii. 

The Band will be heading to Europe again in July 2019.  Departing in July the symphonic touring band will perform in several countries.

During 2016 the band performed several concerts throughout Europe with performances in Fontainebleau outside Paris and Beaune in the Dijon region of France, they enjoyed a day visit to Basel, Switzerland, and then performed in many small towns in the Black Forest, Baden-Wüttemberg and Bavarian regions of Germany. A highlight for the musicians was when they performed a joint concert with the Ellwangen Youth Orchestra in the Ellwangen Palace grounds and also experienced the warm welcome the families that offered to home stayed our fifty-two musicians for five night. Prior to leaving Europe, the musicians had the opportunity to explore the Marienplatz and the walking streets of Munich. 

During the 2014 tour, the Symphonic Touring Band traveled throughout the Rhine River region of Germany and enjoyed home staying with the Ellwangen Youth Orchestra in the region of Baden-Wüttemberg.

During  2011 the Band toured Germany, Netherlands, and Belgium.  On this tour, the Band was given the honour of playing at the Vimy Memorial.  It was the first non-military band in many years to be allowed this honour.  The Band also played at the Menin Gate. 

Tours involve Symphonic Band musicians and generally occur in the summer.
