The annual Beginner and Advanced band day retreat is almost upon us. On May 23rd All Beginner and Advanced Band students need to attend the retreat at Clavet. This is a hugely important event for several reasons. This is the only chance beginning students will have to meet as a group to prepare for the June 1st Final Concert and also the chance to work with a guest director. All students also get to work intensively with instrument specific professional musicians from across Saskatchewan to help with their individual parts.


Where:    Clavet School

When:     All students need to be at Clavet for 8:50am to start at 9am.
