May 28th Band Retreat – please RSVP

The annual Beginner and Intermediate band day retreat is almost upon us. On May 28th it is pivotal that All Beginner and Intermediate Band students 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 6th year end Concert at Lakeview Church. In addition the Senior Band members run afternoon activities the promote cohesion and the building of our Music Community, it is a great chance for Beginners to meet the intermediate band students from all schools that they will play alongside next year. All students also get to work intensively with instrument specific professional musicians from across Saskatchewan to help with their individual parts.
