The Great Lake Winds is going to fill this Sunday afternoon with music from Liszt to R&B, pop to Dixieland in their annual spring concert.

jaydengrahlmanRob Tite, himself a veteran member of the Georgian Bay Symphony, brought this all-ages, all-levels concert band together several years ago so that local wind and brass players could enjoy a variety of repertoire and learn from each other.

Every spring, a talented local musician brings their own style of music to the concert.  This year the band welcomes  Meaford-area guitarist and singer-songwriter Jayden Grahlman to perform his own set during the program. Jayden himself has known the generosity of musical mentors and a supportive community, winning Ontario’s best rural youth guitar player in 2012 and Summerfolk’s youth discovery in 2013As one reviewer said of him,  "Combining effervescent, capable song writing with truly staggering guitar chops, he delivers performances that not only say "man can this guy play" but more over, "isn't music wonderful!" 

The concert begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 7 at Central Westside United Church at 10th Street West and 4th Ave. Admission is by donation, but we don't want money to keep anyone from coming, and children are always free.  All proceeds help provide coaching and instruments for young people in our community.

Homemade goodies and a chance to meet the musicians follow every concert!


Rehearsals start again Saturday mornings this fall, and you'd be welcome. The Winds have recently acquired a marimba from an Ontario pastor who used it in his ministry.marimba  Should any of our readers be inclined to play, or learn to play, this beautiful mellow instrument, or any instrument, Rob would be happy to hear from you.
