Encore is celebrating, and you’re invited!

The 2018—2019 season marks the 25th anniversary of Encore…The Concert Band.

We hope you will join us in celebrating our quarter-century of making great music! See the Concerts and Tickets section of the website for the details of the exciting concerts ahead of us. 

GLORIA! A Christmas Celebration of Music

We hope you will mark Sunday afternoon, December 16, in your calendars!

Encore is thrilled to continue the celebration of its 25th anniversary season, by  presenting a holiday concert with the Amabile Boys & Men’s Choirs.  There will be Christmas favourites for everyone on the program!

We will feature exquisite arrangements of Christmas melodies written by renowned British composer John Rutter; and as well, you will enjoy the familiar strains of carols such as Here We Come A Wassailing and The Coventry Carol.   When you hear the voices of the Amabile Treble Concert Choir and Young Men’s Ensemble performing these beautiful works,  accompanied by Encore,  you will understand why the Amabile Boys and Men’s Choirs have received international recognition.

And if that weren’t enough, we’ve chosen some of your favourite Christmas classics such as It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year  and the Leroy Anderson standard  Sleigh Ride.   And so you can join in  the performance, we will be inviting you to join us for carol singing.

The music of Christmas uplifts the spirits of all of us, regardless of the faith traditions we may each observe. We hope you will join  the musicians of Encore and Amabile at Banting Secondary School on December 16 at 2 pm, so we can  celebrate this wonderful season together!

We look forward to welcoming you to Banting Secondary School.
