We had a great concert on Tuesday night – thanks to everyone that participated in or attended the concert! DVDs of the concert are $5 each and are still available to order (as I said, a great stocking stuffer!). We had a great turn out AND collected 473 hamper items and nearly $300 that will purchase grocery store gift cards for Spectrum families. Good work everyone!
Some of our tuba and euphonium players had a chance to perform in Victoria’s Tuba Christmas on Saturday with… wait for it… EIGHTY-SEVEN tubas. There was a huge crowd and Spectrum was well represented by our musicians. Thanks to everyone that came to watch and listen!
