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!

Blaise introducing ‘The Perfect Storm’
In addition to excellent outings by our students on their instruments, one of the Bands premiered a composition by Blaise, entitled ‘The Perfect Storm‘. It was a rousing and interesting piece, performed with lots of energy and enthusiasm. We look forward to more exciting work from Blaise in the future! Congratulations!
