A word from our players:
"Playing in a group as dynamic as the NYCB teaches you many great skills and lessons. For example, sometime during my 30 years playing French Horn in the band, I've learned that there are no such things as mistakes - just spontaneous creative decisions."


French Horn

"Plato said that music gives a soul to the universe, and wings to the mind. Thanks to the North York Concert Band for providing weekly music, friendship and fun."



"My father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all played in Ontario community bands. I'm proud to carry on the family tradition, and to bring live music into the community."
