Join us for the first concert of the 2017-2018 season, which will be held at the beautiful and intimate Glenn Gould Studio in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district. Winds of Change features music of change, including Sibelius’s Finlandia, Standridge’s Winds of Change, and I Dreamed a Dream from Les Misérables; music about home, including a Suite on Canadian Folk Songs, John Williams’ The Planet Krypton, Flight to Neverland, and Somewhere in my Memory; and Offenbach’s Ballet Parisienne; pop favourites from Journey, Lada Gaga, Wham! and more.
Join us in the acoustically superb Islington United Church for the works of Fauré, Sheldon, Zdechlik, and many more. Experience Divinum Mysterium, Gabriel’s Oboe (from The Mission), and a fun and exciting tribute to trumpeter Harry James, along with favourites: Holst’s Second Suite in F, Ravel’s Bolero, and Robert W. Smith’s To the Summit! (Strive for the highest).
Join our 80-piece ensemble as we celebrate the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with the music of his smash hit musical West Side Story, including Tonight, Maria, Mambo, Cool, Somewhere and others. We will also feature music that created stars of its composers and performers, including Over the Rainbow, the Theme from E.T., five Duke Ellington tunes, Ave Maria, Classical Gas, and so much more.
Join the Toronto Concert Band and our special guests, the Norwegian Travelling Band, as we meet and rehearse together for the first time, in this special event presented by the Royal Conservatory of Music.
This is an informal event with limited space available. Drop in, hear us rehearse, and socialize with the members of both ensembles.
To hear us, head over to the Temerty Theatre at the Royal Conservatory of Music, 273 Bloor St. W. in Toronto. Enter through the glass doors and head up to the second floor. Our bands meet for the first time just a little earlier in the evening, and we’ll be playing music from our own repertoire for one another, rehearsing some music jointly, and generally having a good time. We hope that you enjoy the night of behind-the-scenes music preparation!
The TCB will perform most of the music you’ll hear on Saturday at our fall concert, November 24th at Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto.
Join the TCB for its fifth anniversary season, which will feature three concerts downtown:
