Premiere Performance - Toronto Concert Band
Join the Toronto Concert Band for its premiere performance at the prestigious Glenn Gould Studio in the heart of Toronto’s entertainment district.
The Toronto Concert Band is comprised of 60 musicians of all ages. It is led by two band music icons in the city of Toronto, Les Dobbin and Ken Hazlett. With over six decades of concert band leadership between them, this performance represents a milestone for music in the city.
The concert programme is loaded with rich and varied repertoire – from Grainger and Vaughan Williams to Frankie Valli and The Beatles – including hot Spanish rhythms, jaunty sea songs, timeless folk pieces and splashy Jersey Boys hits. Make it a night out, with dinner at one of countless nearby restaurants then head over to the studio, or enjoy the concert and hit the town afterward.
Admission is $15.
