New Year

It will soon be a new year and the Taffanel Wind Ensemble will be very busy. Our list of gigs already fills three pages and we have two more that were not even solicited this week. Will not turn down a possible opportunity to perform.
Right now all performances are seniors homes but when we have performances which are for the general public they will be posted.
In the meantime, we are getting ready for a performance this Friday and then the New Year will bring in the many opportunities mentioned.
Have a happy new year.

Hazelton Place

This week, the Taffanel Wind Ensemble will be at Hazelton Place. This is the time of year that the group tries to help audience members get in the holiday spirit. Our music changes to include carols. We are lucky to have purchased carols from bassoonist Marsha Schweitzer, bassoonist who lives in Hawaii. The arrangements are excellent. Have already used them for many years.
Will be at Spadina House next week and will let you know about other locations.
Hope that you are starting to get in the holiday spirit.

Seasonal Performances

The Taffanel Wind Ensemble is busy with seasonal performances. On Wednesday we were at Colborne Lodge in High Park for an open house. Quite delightful. This week, we are at Hazelton Place and the following week, we will be at Spadina House for another open house. We are busy with seasonal music at this time.
Hope that you are enjoying the best of the season.
