‘The Music of John Williams’ Concert in Toronto This Weekend

A Celebration of his career: The soundtrack of our lives
April 27, 2019
Guildwood Community Presbyterian Church, Toronto, ON
Featuring the students in the music department of David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute.

“John Williams has a big connection to Canada with his time in Newfoundland during the 1950s. Our music department is putting on a John Williams tribute concert on Saturday, April 27, 2019 @ 7pm.

The music we will be playing will be a dignified attempt at showcasing his entire career with not only music but researched stories about John Williams to augment the performances, including his time spent here in Toronto using our very own Toronto Mendelssohn Choir for the Immolation track on Schindler’s List where he recorded at the famous Glenn Gould Studio in downtown Toronto.

We will have our Wind Ensemble with our most promising musicians as well as Hal Leonard Signature Edition performances for solo instrument with piano.”
