About the Hannaford Youth Program

 

The Hannaford Youth Program (HYP) is operated under the auspices of the HANNAFORD STREET SILVER BAND, a world renowned, award winning, professional brass band that has been active in the Toronto community since 1983.

The Hannaford Youth Program is a fantastic opportunity for BRASS and PERCUSSION players ages 7 to 24 years, beginner to advanced, to participate in any one of three brass bands:

  • The Hannaford Youth Band (HYB) Advanced High School and University/College students

  • The Hannaford Community Band (HCB) Intermediate

  • The Hannaford Junior Band (HJB) Beginners

 

Members have the opportunity to participate in rehearsals, concerts, clinics, competitions, recordings and more!

Established in 1999, the program runs from September to May each year, with weekly rehearsals and concert appearances as well as an annual ‘Rising Stars Solo Competition’, held annually as part of the Hannaford Festival of Brass.
