Unionville concert Jun 2016

Our annual Open Air concert was on June 26, 2016 at Unionville Main Street Bandstand.
We put away our worries about the BREXIT, the extreme heat warnings, and the possibility of a shower.

Listen to “Those were the days”… sang by Sharon Smith, our special guest, performed with the Encore Band.

A pleasurable evening spent under the breezy sky at Markham Millenium Bandstand.
Thanks to Markham Concert Band for hosting the event.

CD Launch Party

On Thursday, April 7 th, nearly 50 professional musicians came together to launch their first CD “Snapshots in Sounds”, the debut CD album of the Encore Symphonic Concert Band. The concert provide musical entertainment and inspiration for all ages, including big band swing hits, film score favourites, classical music and military marches. Following the concert we had a CD Launch party to celebrate the release of Encore Band’s first CD in their 30+ year history.

Encore Band has a monthly concert series at Wilmar Heights Event Centre, on the first Thursday of every month. Thanks to James Ramesbottom, Wilmar Heights Event Centre’s administrator, who has been extremely positive about our mission and actively promoted our monthly concerts to the community and local seniors’ organization.
