La Fanfare STE Cecile (Ste. Cecilia’s Band) Photograph
Ste. Cecilia’s Band was founded in 1897 by the Dominican Lay Brother Aymon under the auspices of L’Association St Dominique. As a boys band, members were accepted from the ages of seven. The band produced many accomplished musicians who went to perform locally with the Dominican Band as well as pursuing professional music careers. In 1947, the band became the Montagnard Band.
