Encore Symphonic Concert Band Performance:

Date: Nov 3, 2016
Place: Wilmar Heights Event Centre, Toronto

November 3, 2016 Concert In Fond Memory of Tom Robins
It is with sadness and fond remembrance of our recently deceased President Tom Robins that we dedicate our November 3 concert to his memory. Tom was one of the founding members of the Encore Band and a tireless worker on its behalf for as long as most of us can remember. His cheerful demeanour and the masterful way he managed to garner co-operation from everyone he encountered to the benefit of the Band was appreciated by all and will be sadly missed. His positive attitude and the fierce, quiet and cheerful determination to face the ravages of the cancer that ultimately took him from us stands as an inspiration to us all.
Good bye Tom. This one’s for you.
