The Lakeshore Concert Band, directed by Mark Dharmaratnam,
gave a wonderful concert of popular works at Summerlea on Sunday afternoon, October 14. |
The freewill offering goes towards Summerlea's Music Fund and to help fund the band trip to Vancouver in 2008. We are grateful to the Lakeshore Concert Band for bringing us this delightful afternoon of entertainment.
The Lakeshore Concert Band was founded by Morley Calvert in 1967, and first performed at Expo '67. It began as an adult education course at Lindsay Place High School in Pointe Claire, but quickly outgrew those roots and evolved into an independent community band. As it approaches its 40th anniversary, the band is still based in the West Island of Montreal.
The group regularly performs throughout the Montreal area, and beyond. Outdoor concerts featuring a varied popular program highlight the summer months, while the winter season features a series of more formal concerts in concert hall venues. Opportunities are sought to support charitable causes, resulting in concerts at schools, hospitals and fund-raising events.
You can enjoy more of their music this year:
