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!
