Memorial In Motion

Memorial in Motion - Van Attack - 2019 Flyer

In remembrance of the Toronto Van Attack, April 23, 2018, I led a small group in what was intended to be a processional along Yonge Street from Finch to Sheppard.

We managed to play for an hour or so, keeping out of the rain under several sheltered spots along the first few blocks of our route.  Ultimately, the weather thwarted our attempts to make it all the way to Sheppard.  Nevertheless, I was proud to do this and grateful for the support of my lovely Street Brass comrades.
I’ll be arranging this again next year and hope to make it an annual event.  Our music can express aspects of grief, honour, solidarity, compassion and love that can’t be expressed otherwise.  What a gift!
