princely sum of ,000

princely sum of ,000 year. He remained there until 1923 when hiswife's poor health forced them to move to a warmer climate. In hisearlier days, before joining the band of John Philip Sousa, Clarke hadconducted the Heintzman Company Band and subsequently, the TaylorSafe Works Band both in Toronto.While "Works Bands" still flourish in Britain, over the past 60 orso years company bands have all but disappeared from the musicalscene in Canada. The last significant such group that I can recall seeingwas the White Rose Oil Company Band from Petralia, Ontario.Where such bands have continued, they have produced some amazingmusicians. In the latter part of the twentieth century, one of theworld's top trumpet masters, Maurice Andre, rose from the ranks ofa French coal mine band to performing worldwide and teaching at theParis Conservatory.So where am I going with this? Well, it has often been said that inhard times people make their own entertainment. What better waythan with like-minded friends (or co-workers) making music? Forthose who already own their instruments, the costs are significantlyless that many other forms of recreation. The organizations normallyhave an adequate library of music. Other than the costs of transportationto rehearsals and performances, usually the only other expense isa small annual membership fee. Up to and through the great depressionof the 1930s one would be hard pressed to locate a town of anysize in this country which did not have a community band and/or orchestra.Even through the dark days of WW II, band tattoos were apopular form of entertainment. My personal recollection of this era isof travelling with my boys band to a different town tattoo almost everySaturday throughout the summer, culminating in a season endingtrip to the Canadian National Exhibition to compete with other bands(including a number of company bands). We know of a few bands inSouthern Ontario which have in recent years established "beginners'bands" for adults. Is it time for the company band to re-emerge as arelatively inexpensive employee benefit?ALDEBURGH CONNECTION 28ALDEBURGH CONNECTION 30ALGOMA MUSIC CAMP 45ALL SAINTS' KINGSWAY ANGLICANCHURCH 28ALL THE KING 'S VOICES 16AMADEUS CHOIR 34AMICI 34AMOROSO 44ART OF TIME ENSEMBLE 26ARTS [ NTEGRA INTERNATIONAL SUMMERPROGRAMME 47ASSOCIATES OF THE TSO 28ATMA 5BACH CONSORT 33BACKSPLIT 53BLOOR CINEMA 53BRIAN CURRENT 48CANADIAN CHILDREN'S OPERACOMPANY 41CANADIAN OPERA COMPANY 12CANCLONE SERVICES 44CANTARE STUDIOS 42CANTEMUS 29CHALKERS 40CHAUTAUQUA 46CHRIST CHURCH DEER PARK JAZZVESPERS 19CLASSICAL 96.3FM 55CONTINUUM CONTEMPOARY Music 34COSMO Music 21COUNTERPOINT CHORALE 32COUNTERPOINT COMMUNITYORCHESTRA 24DON HEIGHTS UNITARIANCONGREGATION 31DR.
