We are looking for new musicians to join us!

If you have recently moved to Toronto, or are eager to dust off your instrument , come out  and give us a try.   Rehearsals will start up again in September. While we are a non-auditioned band, we do expect you to be able to keep up with the music.  You can give us a try for 2-3 weeks  before making a commitment to joining the band. We are looking for the following instruments:

  • Auxiliary Percussion
  • Tuba

( Our flute, saxophone,  and euphonium sections are currently full.) 

Please contact us at  ntcband@gmail.com with any questions.

We rehearse at Willowdale Presbyterian Church ( 38 Ellerslie Ave. North York), off Yonge Street, just north of Mel Lastman Square, on Monday evenings at 7:30 pm.
