Hannaford Youth Bands

This past weekend the Hannaford Youth Bands hosted one of their 2012-13 concerts at the Church of the Redeemer, and Bloor and Avenue Road.

ABC encourages our brass students to join this group, because it is a great opportunity to share music making outside of lessons, practicing, and personal enjoyment.  The Hannaford Bands are uniquely for Brass instrumentalists, which makes for a group of kids that is totally like-minded.  Additionally, the groups are coached by some of the best musicians in the city.  Not surprisingly, the kids involved with this group are really good kids!
