The Hannaford Street Silver Band is Canada’s award-winning professional brass band and resident company of Toronto’s St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts. Its mission is to honour the traditions of this art form and place it in a contemporary context with a unique, Canadian point of view. We actively facilitate innovative creative projects and collaborate with the best of Canada’s diverse artists. Our 2018/19 season features brass repertoire gems paired with new music played with the verve and virtuosity you expect from the Hannaford Band: “Cascades” on November 1 features tuba virtuoso Carol Jantsch with guest conductor Jean Michel Malouf; “Christmas Cheer” is on Tuesday December 11 at Metropolitan United Church with Ben Heppner and the Elmer Iseler Singers; “From Russia with Brass” on Sunday, February 10 features the incomparable Philip Smith, conductor and trumpet soloist; and our season concludes on Sunday April 14 with the North Atlantic Drift led by Dr. James Gourlay.
The HSSB demonstrates its commitment to youth, outreach and education by running the Hannaford Youth Program. This vibrant program is a fantastic opportunity for brass and percussion players ages 7 to 24 participate in 3 youth bands. Get into brass, the Hannaford kind!
