Canadian Brass at Meaford Hall

With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of “the world’s most famous brass group”.

This concert will show the full range from trademark Baroque and Dixieland tunes to new compositions and arrangements created especially for them – from formal classical presentation to music served up with lively dialogue and theatrical effects. The hallmark of any Canadian Brass performance is entertainment, spontaneity, virtuosity, and most of all fun – but never at the expenses of the music.
With a discography of over 130 albums and an extensive world-wide touring schedule, Canadian Brass is an important pioneer in brining brass music to mass audiences everywhere. Among, over 2 million in album sales worldwide (1.2 million of those sold since 1991), Canadian Brass continues to score Billboard chart positions; with Stars & Stripes: Canadian Brass Salute America, which spent 8 weeks in the Top 25 on the Billboard Classical Chart, peaking at #2.
Canadian Brass has enthused fans worldwide by touring through; Canada, USA, Japan, Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Soviet Union, and South America. The group has had the privilege to be the first brass ensemble from the West to perform in the People’s Republic of China, where they returned for a 5 city tour in 2010, and later for other performances.

Four Fantastic Dad Approved Soups

My wonderful friends Sylvia and Mark from Grandma's Airport Cafe have hit it out of the ballpark with their frozen soups to go.  I recently picked up 4 different kinds (ok...3 soups and 1 chili) to test on my Dad who is a new member of our household.  I'm always looking for delicious but quick and easy dining options to feed Sir Walter David (aka picky eater).

Beef Vegetable Soup

Chicken Noodle Soup

Cream of Mushroom

Chili with a sprinkle of Cheddar

So...hats of to Grandma's Airport Cafe and their wonderful soups!
