, llEI andStand BY MERLIN WILLIAMS Well, here it is: my last colmnn for the - year! Etobicoke Community Concert Band CD. nust finished listening to the first CD produced by the Etobicoke Community Concert Band. This recording features the band and their guest soloists performing fourteen energetic pops selections under the baton of conductor/trumpet soloist John Edward Liddle. Five of the arrangements on the CD are from the pen of Toronto arranger/reedman Eddie Graf. It's refreshing to see bands utilize the skills of writers in their own community. Eddie's chart on "Tico Tico" is a terrific feature for Bill Hughes' flute playing. I'm glad to see more projects like this one taking shape around Toronto. I look forward to seeing many more band recordings coming out of this town in the next few years. The CD, entitled "The Etobicoke Community Concert Band And Friends", is available by calling the band's box office at ( 416) 410-1570. It should also be available at the band's Christmas concert (see Dec. 4 listings for details.) Speaking of Christmas concerts there are plenty of Christmas concerts in December. Here are some that stand out in my mind: The Markham Concert Band (see Dec. 12 listings) is presenting music by Handel and Tchaikovsky. I love hearing bands doing transcriptions of ' classics during the holiday season. It's a nice change from medley after medley of popular seasonal songs. Conductor Diana Brault and the band are also BANDSTAND continues next page r••••••••••••••••••··~ I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I WholeNote's Contest of the Month December/January, 1999/2000 Congratulations to last month's contest winner, Charles R.
