The Lakeshore Concert Band, originally created to encourage and promote community music for amateur musicians, young and old, in Montreal and the West Island, gave its first public performance at Expo '67. The Band is now a charitable foundation which, through its concerts and music, raises funds for schools and charitable organizations such as the Gazette Christmas Fund and the West Island Association for the Intellectually Handicapped, to name only a few. The band also holds a gala concert each year, usually in April or May.
On Saturday, May 25, at 7:30PM at Lindsay Place High School, the LCB will present its 2019 Gala Concert, entitled “Musical Postcards”. The concert will feature music from around the globe, evoking such visions as sunrise on the Serengeti, spiritual hymns from America and England, folk songs from Asia, and Russian escapades on the high seas.
