× WESTON SILVER BAND - THREE TIME NORTH AMERICAN BRASS BAND CHAMPIONS “Music of the British Isles”

April 7 at 3:00 p.m $28 + HST ST. JOHN'S UNITED CHURCH

Now in its 98th season, The Weston Silver Band (WSB) traces its continuous history back to 1921 when it was created as the Weston Boys’ Band. Under the baton of Music Director Larry Shields, the bands membership is made up of accomplished brass players from the GTA and surrounding areas.

The WSB has gained international recognition as a performing ensemble. Between April 2014 and April 2018, the WSB has won three National titles at the North American Brass Band Championships in the USA - the first Canadian brass band to ever do so in the history of the contest. At home, they are five-time winners of the Hannaford Cup, an annual Award of Excellence at Toronto’s Festival of Brass. The WSB is currently ranked as one of the top 10 Brass Bands in North America in the very competitive world of Brass Bands.

Renowned for their exciting concerts and dazzling soloists, the band also actively seeks to promote the brass band tradition as an important part of the cultural heritage of this province. WSB concerts appeal to audiences of all generations, who are often amazed at this new, fresh, and exciting musical experience.
