27th at 6:20PM - Symphonic Band @ Optimist Festival at the Convention Centre
7th at 3:35PM - Sr. Jazz @ Optimist Jazz Festival at North Kildonan Mennonite Church, 1315 Gateway
Band members are expected to be in the lobby of the convention centre at the bottom of the escalators one hour before performance time. Gr 10 Concert Band and Symphonic Band are to find their own transportation to and from the event.
Our ensembles perform better with an audience. Please do your very best to come with your son or daughter and support them as they compete at the festival. Bring a friend or a neighbour and celebrate the amazing music that our young people are making. Admission is $2.00
A reminder to symphonic band members that we have volunteered to help with clean up on Friday night. Please plan to stay for about a hour after our clinic to help stack chairs and stands as well as helping to put the festival bits and pieces back in their boxes. Parents are more than welcome to help.
