Music at the Met: TCB+EYB
Join the Toronto Concert Band for a special joint performance with the Etobicoke Youth Band at Toronto’s glorious Metropolitan United Church in the heart of the city, at Church Street & Queen Street East. Each band wil perform on its own, and will then combine for a grand finale of nearly 200 musicians on stage to close the concert.
The bands will perform favourites including Jacob de Haan’s Ross Roy, John Williams’ famous theme from Superman, excerpts from Les Misérables, Debussy’s Engulfed Cathedral, and much more.
About the EYB
The EYB was formed to give music students the opportunity to play an enriched repertoire of music, from the classic band repertoire to marches to pop music. This dynamic group of young people has performed throughout the community and annually competes with distinction in a prominent music festival, receiving a first-place standing at the Kiwanis Music Festival in Toronto. The EYB consists of well over 100 members, who range in age between 12 and 18 and attend different middle and high schools in Toronto.
