The Ontario Band Association was founded in 2001 by a group of friends and colleagues with a passion for band and music-making. Since then, with the hard work of a volunteer board, the support of key partners and allies, and the dedication of hundreds of engaged members and lifelong learners, the OBA has flourished. Now in its twentieth year, the OBA looks to the future with a commitment to reach more band educators and musicians across the province of Ontario; we will continue creating exciting and relevant events and resources in support of band education in schools.
We would like to recognize Greg Way as the Founding Chairperson of the OBA
