Spadina House

The Taffanel Wind Ensemble will be playing at Spadina House today for Music in the Orchard. This is a free series of Sunday Music concerts outdoors. We have been doing this series for about 10 years. Always a pleasure and it looks like today will be a nice day for this.
After the concert, chance to see the gardens at the house which are lovely.

Princess Margaret Lodge

This month, the Taffanel Wind Ensemble will perform at Princess Margaret Lodge. This is one location that we go to regularly. We hope that our contribution of music helps the residents during their treatment.
We encourage others to find a way to contribute to the cause of their choice.

Percy Faith's sister

Today the Taffanel Wind Ensemble debuted its new programme for 2012. The audience really liked the concert which included music arranged by Marsha Swietzer and a work by Francois Devienne who was a French bassoonist and flutist. Interesting combination.
At the end of the performance, a woman came up and thanked us for the performance. Apparently, she is Percy Faith's sister. There were 8 children in the family. Percy Faith the oldest and she was 15 years younger and the youngest. Nice to meet someone who has this kind of musical connection.
We are looking to future performances.
