The Ontario Band Association (OBA) is a network of music leaders dedicated to inspiring, enriching and connecting students and educators to share, explore, and enhance the experience of music through bands.



The OBA hosts two major symposiums every year: Beginning Band Symposium and York/OBA Wind Conducting Symposium, and is starting a brand new event: Capital Region/OBA Wind Band Symposium. All these events offer music educators the chance to enhance their abilities with the experience and advice of an expert clinician.
