It’s been a long 26 months since we had to cancel our last concert. But we’re back! And we have some great music for you.
The programme has a little something for everyone from several genres of music. It includes a rousing new march by Richmond Hill’s own Hugh Wallis titled Allensbank – a reference to his maternal grandmother’s birthplace in Wales with a twist. Order of Canada recipient singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot’s Railroad Trilogy has been craftily orchestrated for brass band by Orillia’s Robert Redhead. For those who love a bit of history, Canadian-born Robert Farnon wrote the BBC TV series Colditz theme. Newfoundland’s Gary Johnstone composed Music for a Holy Place – a solemn and reflective piece for the centenary of the battle of Beaumont Hamel, July 1, 1916, involving the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. A more recent addition to the brass band repertoire is the inspirational Call of the Victor by Toronto’s Marcus Venables. And for those who like folk songs, They Came Sailing by Andre Jutras will get your toes tapping. And more!
Quite a fabric in brass! Come join us.
