Senior Band Tour and Band Tour
May 11th-14th Full letter and registration —-> Tour 2017 letter
Dear Senior Concert Band Parents & Students,
The East and West Senior Ensembles will again join forces to tour to Edmonton. The trip will include working with first class clinicians in Edmonton, School Performances and watching the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra with the famed young and exciting Violin Soloist Simone Porter.
We will also be taking educational trips to the Edmonton Science center, Planetarium and also a special hands on look into our Heritage and Canadian history, taking part in the ‘Fur Trade Challenge’ at Fort Edmonton.
There are three different price points for tour based on whether students want to take part in special activities in West Edmonton Mall. We have two allotted times for activities inside the Mall. Students can choose or decide to opt out from the three choices.
Students will be staying in West Edmonton Mall for three nights, leaving Thursday May 11th Morning and returning Sunday May 14th.
This is a fantastic opportunity and learning experience for all students and for the program and we want to do everything we can to ensure that everyone attends and we put on the best possible performance we are capable of. Please find payment plans attached.
It is however important that we know final numbers before the Easter break to confirm with Hotels and events. Please contact Mr. Streisel, Ms. Wist or Mr. Martin to confirm attendance or if you have any questions.
Thank you again for your patience and support,
Will Martin Andra Wist Adam Streisel
