Thanks to the efforts of 55 students and parents on Saturday we raised $1732 for student accounts and for the band general account! Congratulations and thank you for your hard work and dedication to the supporting the band program at Spectrum. :)
Also, I forgot to mention that 20 students and parents attended the UVic Wind Symphony/Naden Band Concert 2 weeks ago. Thank you to everyone that came. I hope you enjoyed yourselves. What a brilliant performance!
Tickets are now on sale for Spectrum’s senior musical theatre production of “The Drowsy Chaperone.” I really encourage you to come and check out one of the performances. Spectrum students in the cast, crew, and pit orchestra have been working extremely hard to put this show together. You will not be disappointed. Performances are on February 28, March 1, 6, 7, 8 at 7:30pm (There is also a matinee on March 8 at 2:00pm). Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students.
