Each year we bring a raft of bands to participate in our local festival - The Optimist International Band and Jazz Festival... this year we bring a total of 7 bands.
Optimist is a high-lite of our school year and the expectation is that everyone participates; consequently, we post the dates as soon as possible so everyone can clear their schedules. If you see a conflict, please contact me immediately, as I may be able to find a solution if given enough notice.
Students are expected to be at the location 1 hour before their performance time.

These performances are at the Winnipeg Convention Centre and students meet at the bottom of the escalators just inside the main door..
