1.) Year End Concert Date Change
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have had to CHANGE the date of our year end band concert. Please note that our year end band concert will now take place on Tuesday, June 2nd at 7:00pm at the Alix Goolden Hall at the Victoria Conservatory of Music (instead of June 9th as originally scheduled). I hope that this will still be accessible for band families, especially those families that have guest traveling from out-of-town to watch this concert. Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause. Students – please let your employers know ASAP!
2.) 2016 Band Tour – San Francisco, California
We have started planning our next Band Tour for Spring Break 2016. With the success of the Germany tour this past Spring we are now looking at an exciting 7-day bus tour down to San Francisco. There will be a good mix of educational, musical, and fun events for everyone to do!
The cost of the tour is $1550 (including ALL meals, accommodations, attractions/events, and transportation). We are asking for families to commit to tour ASAP due to the fluctuating US/CA dollar. Our tour company, Educational World Tours, will purchase US dollars on our behalf so that we can secure and maintain the cost of the tour (in case the dollar fluctuates, so we aren’t put in a situation where we have to ask for more money).
Please have a look at the San Fran Tour Page. Please return the “Intent To Travel Form” and the required deposit ($250) by May 29th to secure your seat on the tour!
3.) French-Braiders Needed for Victoria Day Parade
We are in desperate need of hair braiders for the Victoria Day Parade next Monday. If you can help out please email Carol Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know.
Don’t forget that we have a WEEKEND PRACTICE at Tillicum Mall on Sunday from 6pm-7pm. Parade Day is Monday, May 18th. Students meet at Mayfair Mall at 7:45am in full uniform in Section C-47 (between The Bay and Blanshard Street).
