Hannaford Street Silver Band free concert

The sweet brass sounds of Hannaford Street Silver Band will wash over the beautiful grounds of Macaulay Heritage Park in Picton Saturday, Sept. 16.

The County Museums has partnered with the Prince Edward County Classical Music Festival to host the free outdoor family concert, which begins at 2 pm.

The concert will feature 10 members of the acclaimed Hannaford Street Silver Band from Toronto. The afternoon’s musical program will range from Renaissance to Baroque and continues through to Big Band and the Beatles.

The Hannaford Street Silver Band is the only one of its kind in Canada. Its mission is to honour the traditions of this art form and, at the same time, place it in a contemporary context with a unique Canadian point of view. The American Record Guide has called the group the “finest brass band on the continent,” while the Winnipeg Free Press has raved that the band offers an “exhilarating experience.”

“This event offers a unique way to appreciate our history, including its musical facets,” says Jennifer Lyons, Head Curator, The County Museums. “We are pleased to work with the Prince Edward County Classical Music Festival to present this special offering to festival patrons and County residents, one that touches upon several historical eras and also commemorates Canada’s 150th anniversary.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. If they arrive early, attendees will also have free admission to the museum buildings, including the “County Canadiana Gallery” at the church on site and the historic Macaulay House.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be relocated to St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church (335 Picton Main Street).
