Kensington Residence

The Taffanel Wind Ensemble is busy with the fall and winter schedule. Next week, the group will be playing at Kensington Residence, downtown. This will be for the volunteer recognition dinner. The trio will play for cocktails and then the dinner. We will be fed after during speechs. This will be a lovely treat.
After this, the group is busy organizing for other seniors residences and soon we will bring out our Christmas music to prepare for Spadina House and other locations such as Beechwood in Mississauga.

Otteto Prosciutto at the McMichael Gallery

This afternoon, the octet plus two flutes, Otteto Prosciutto performed at the McMichael Gallery. And so ends the 2009 season. Hard to believe that another 4 months have passed and we have managed to perform at Belmont House, Central Park-Leaside Residence and Fellowship Towers as well as the gallery this afternoon.
This year, we were lucky enough to Gloria Ratcliffe conduct us and as a bonus Gary, her husband recorded the group's performance today. What a privilege to have such professionals work with us.
The Taffanel Wind Ensemble is busy and will be performing this week.
More about that later in the week.
