For the Love of the Arts

For the Love of the Arts or as we like to call it.... F.L.O.T.A.  is coming up quickly and there have been a few questions, so let's get everyone up to speed.

Westwood Collegiate "For the Love of the Arts" Arts Showcase, hosted by the Westwood Collegiate Arts Advisory Group parents, will be taking place on Monday, April 15th in the school gymnasium.

The Visual Arts and Graphic Tech art display in the front foyer will be open to the public at 5:30 with the live performances from Choral, Dance, Drama, and Band will be starting at 7:00 pm in the gymnasium. The tickets are $12.00 and they are on sale in the library from 8:00 am-4:00 pm each day. The performance is rush seating with doors opening at 6:30 pm. Refreshments will be served throughout the performance.

All are welcome to attend cheques are made payable to Westwood Collegiate.

"Band-wise" - this involves the Gr. 9 Concert Band and Sr. Jazz.  This, as all of our live performances, is considered to be an exam and all students involved are required to attend.  

Gr. 9 Concert Band performs 4th and 12th in Part one of the program and Sr. Jazz performs 24th and 29th - Near the end.  Students are permitted to leave after their performances are finished. If students wish to stay, they are welcome to sit in the upper-deck for free or if they wish to sit in the audience, they will need to buy a ticket.

Gr. 9 concert band should be in the band room no later than 6:30 and will be going on stage at 7:00.  Gr. 9's are welcome to leave once their performance is done - sometime around 8:00.  Sr. Jazz is to meet in the band room no later than 8:00 and will run through a quick warm-up and be ready to go on at 8:15ish.

We will set up at 7:00a.m. on Monday morning  (April 15th) with the Gr. 9's.  We will rehearse at 7:30ish.  Sr. Jazz will rehearse at 8:30 - 9:00.  Sr. Jazz will take care of the tear down once the night is over.
