Histoire administrative

The band program for the youth of Swift Current began in 1944 when Charles Warren organized an Air Cadet band. In 1948 the group reorganised and became the Swift Current Boys Band. The community began to sponsor the band, and they won several awards while playing in such places as Toronto and Calgary. In 1958, the Swift Current Boys Band opened up its membership to girls, and became the Swift Current Junior Band. They continued to tour and win awards. By 1969 the band became affiliated with the Board of Education and school credits were given for band work. The band continued to be affiliated with the local high school.
