The Hannaford Street Silver Band is Canada’s award-winning professional brass band and resident company of Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Its mission is to honour the traditions of this art form and place it in a contemporary context with a unique, Canadian point of view. We actively facilitate innovative creative projects and collaborate with the best of Canada’s diverse artists.
2014/15 features brass repertoire gems paired with new music played with the verve and virtuosity you expect from the Hannaford Band:
“Songs of the Paradise Saloon,” on October 26, sees Bramwell Tovey return with his epic Trumpet Concerto for virtuoso Andrew McCandless. “Welcome Christmas II” celebrates the season with the Orpheus Choir on December 16, in the beautiful acoustic of Yorkminster Park Baptist Church. “Drumming the Heartbeat,” on February 15, explores the surprisingly deep ties between First Nations and brass music with Barbara Croall.
The culmination of our season is the three-day Festival of Brass, April 17 to 19, showcasing Brass Band legend Edward Gregson and TSO Principal Trombonist Gordon Wolfe.
