Welcome to the home of the East York Concert Band!

For more than 75 years, the East York Concert Band has brought the joy of music to audiences across the Greater Toronto Area. Conducted by David Lum, our band is a non-profit, community organization with talented members ranging in age from their early 20s to their late 80s. We perform throughout the year at a wide array of local venues including hospitals, legions, seniors’ homes and churches, in addition to private functions and our annual holiday and spring concerts.

See and hear highlights of our 75th anniversary.
