Join us for an unforgettable evening of musical brilliance at the grand finale of the much-awaited Great Canadian Brass Band Festival Gala Concert!
Due to a family matter, our guest conductor Philip Smith will unfortunately no longer be able to join us. While unforeseen circumstances may have led to a last-minute change in our guest conductor, the spirit and camaraderie of our incredible brass band community shines brighter than ever.
Renowned euphonium virtuoso, Gary Curtin, will be gracing our stage as our esteemed guest soloist. Hannaford welcomes Cynthia Johnston Turner, former Director of Bands at the University of Georgia and newly appointed Dean of Music at Wilfrid Laurier University will lead the Hannaford Band in the Festival Gala Concert and we are thrilled she is able to join us and lead this concert of spectacular music for brass, including new music commissioned for this concert by Marcus Venables and Juno Award-nominated composer Kristofer Maddigan.
This evening is a testament to the unbreakable bonds that unite our brass band community. Through the challenges faced, we have come together to create an extraordinary event showcasing the unwavering unity of our exceptional brass band community.
Don’t miss out on this extraordinary gala concert finale, and be part of a magical evening!
