Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant       Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\backup\Family\Daddy\Brockville Concert Band\Website\OTFlogo25.jpg

In 2003, the Band (led by Peri Howlett) prepared, submitted and had an application approved to the Ontario Trillium Foundation to financially sponsor a series of "workshops" for the Band members to provide some specialized training from experts from the Music Department of the University of Toronto. Have a look at this picture of the Band accepting the grant.

The workshops covered various aspects of performance, technique (including some related theory) and overall musicianship.

We celebrated the completion of the series of workshops with a concert at the Brockville Arts Centre on May 16, 2004
