NEW and EXCITING the BAND "FLASH DRIVE" Fundraiser

We have never wanted to inundate parents with loads of fundraisers for our program and as a result the BAND CD was born.  We started this adventure being as cutting edge as possible and began with recording a CD of the bands.  Then we moved to a DVD to include videos and photos.  Who ever thought that we would fill a DVD (4.7G) with our music? It's hard to believe that some people didn't even own DVD players when we began and now we have out-grown that format and have moved on to a new and exiting platform... the FLASH DRIVE!  So instead of selling our world renowned band DVD at the upcoming concert on Tuesday May 29th, we will be switching over to a complete reusable guitar shaped FLASH DRIVE which you can easily download into your computer.

As mentioned at the Winter Concert, we hire professional photographers and videographers to capture our concerts so you as parents (and students) do not have to watch the wonderful music making going on through a 4 inch screen as you try to save that moment into your device.

Never fear, it will continue to feature lots of movies and tons of photos from each performing ensemble in the Band Program and including every concert (yep even the final Jazz Concert on the 30th).  The main difference, is that this new format will allow us to move to a better resolution of movie and we are all really pleased with that.

By purchasing one of our FLASH DRIVESyou do not have to stare at your loved one through a 4 inch screen and can enjoy the concert.  We have been compiling this information over the past year, and we cannot tell you how excited we are about this dynamic project.  This exciting keepsake can act as a supplement to your son’s or daughter’s yearbook or act as a stand alone souvenir of the “too numerous to mention” accomplishments of the band program.  All orders must be pre-paid and no orders will be accepted after June 1st. A parent committee will be at the concert on the 29th to take your order.  The flash drives will be available for pick-up some time during the week of the report card pick up.    

Pick up a FLASH DRIVE and enjoy a glimpse inside: “band@westwood”  and support our program in a very fun way.        

If you wish, you can print the lower portion as an order form and bring it to the concert with your cheque or cash, but don't worry the parent committee will have lots of order forms for you at the door.
