“Canada - A Centennial Song” by Bobby Gimby.
Here’s the Thornhill Community Band’s virtual salute to seniors and healthcare workers on YouTube.com. Since we are unable to continue our usual practice of performing at seniors' residences, we offer this video with the hope that it will bring them some joy in these difficult times of the Covid-19 Pandemic. This song was chosen because it is a patriotic song from the 1967 centennial that is clearly identifiable by all Canadian seniors as part of the "music of their life."
Thank you to the band members, our music director - Graz Brescacin and especially the project's technical producer/editor, Dr. Jackie Auguste. We wish to give special thanks to all our sponsors including Scotiabank, IBM and Imperial Oil. We invite everyone to help out by staying safe and staying apart and if able, to make a donation to your local food bank.
