Dear Music Families,

Our final concert is right around the corner. We are writing you today to inform you of the finalized details for this fun event.

There will be a few chairs provided for seating, but please bring your own lawn chair if you can. Please note the venue is partially outdoors, so please be prepared for the weather.

There is no charge to get into the concert, but we will be doing a silver collection on top of our bake sale and barbeque fundraiser. There will also be raffle tickets available for purchase. The raffle will be drawn during the formal portion of the concert. All proceeds from the evening will go directly towards musical activities and opportunities for our band students for the 2019-2020 school year.

The barbeque will start at 6:00pm and will be first come first served and is cash only. The charge for the barbeque will be $5 which includes your choice of a hotdog or hamburger, one drink, and one item from the bake sale. If you would like to purchase additional drinks or bake sale items they will be charged at $1 a piece. We ask that all Grade 7 – 12 students bring one dozen items for the bake sale. We ask that these items do remain nut free due to allergies. If you are in Grade 5 or 6 you are welcome to bring items for the bake sale, but it is not mandatory.

Please have your music student at the venue by 5:45pm so you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy the informal performances, and be prepared for the formal program to begin at 7:00pm. The formal program will include the East West Jazz Band, West Rhythm Box, Junior Band, Brass Ensemble, East and West Beginners, and our Senior Band. Grade 5 and 6 students are to dress smart, Grade 7 – 12 are to dress smart or in all black.

Please do not hesitate to contact your music teacher if you have any questions.

Yours musically,

Mr. Will Martin (william.martin@spiritsd.ca) , Mr. AJ Ward (alexander.ward@spiritsd.ca)  and Ms. Shelby Thompson (shelby.thompson@spiritsd.ca)
