Easter at North York Temple

Easter and Christmas are the two obvious highlighted events for the Church calendar. North York Temple is no different, and this Easter weekend was non-stop action. It included the Good Friday morning service, corps dinner followed by a concert on Saturday. With a breakfast, egg hunt, march and service all on Sunday. ​​

This year the Saturday program held at the corps was featuring the University of Toronto Gospel Choir, along with the Band, Songsters, Junior Band, and Singing Company. The choir brought an enthusiastic praise atmosphere that was a perfect mix to the standard SA style music. The bands contributions for the evening included Let Everything Praise, They Shall Come From the East, When I Survey, and Boundless Kingdom.

What is outstanding about the band is their commitment beyond just the musical participation. This includes serving at the dinner and breakfast, setting up and tearing down, and interacting with the people at the packed hall on Saturday night. They continue to be a marvelous model of Salvationists for the young people of the corps, and the new people that are being reached at these events. We praise God for the opportunity to play music in this way, and hope to meet you at a future concert!

December 16 & 17

The band was out in full force on the weekend of December 16 and 17. On Saturday, it was a treat to play in the beautiful Tyndale Chapel in North York. This building, originally a Catholic church, is one of the most underrated gems in the city. The band joined with the Amadeus Choir of Toronto, as well as the North York Temple Singing Company. Highlights for the evening included two new transcriptions by Ryan Broughton of Alan Silvestri’s “Spirit of the Season” and “God Bless us Everyone”. This concert is hoped to be an annual event hosted by the North York Temple Salvation Army as a way to celebrate the season, but also minister to the community of North York. It was a delight to see many unfamiliar faces in the crowd.  

On the Sunday, after the morning service at North York Temple. The band travelled down the highway to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre for the Christmas with the Salvation Army concert hosted by the Burlington Corps. Another wonderful venue to perform, the band was privileged to accompany the carols and the London Citadel Timbrels in “On we March” “The Carollers” and “Comfort and Joy”. The bands contributions included “A Christmas Festival” and “A Little Christmas Suite” by Ruben Schmidt.

The rest of the Christmas season saw various small ensemble engagements and Christmas caroling. It is always a privilege to share in music ministry, and the band looks forward to resuming rehearsals in 2018!
