Resonate Gala

Hi Everyone!

We just wanted to send out some information about an upcoming fundraiser for Resonate. For those who are unfamiliar with Resonate, please see the link below for information about what is it and who can attend:

We are inviting all PSSD band students and families to join us at 7:00 on Wednesday, November 23rd at The Bassment (202-4th Avenue North, Saskatoon SK) for a night of music and entertainment as a way to raise funds to pay for Resonate. There will be a house band composed of various PSSD staff (Including Mr. Martin, Mr. Streisel, Mr. Friesen, and Ms. Wist!), student performances, and an exciting set from the feature band “Sambatoon”. Tickets are $15 for Adults, $10 for 18 and under, and $40 for a family (2 adults and 2 children under 18). If you or your family are interested in attending, tickets can be bought from any of the PSSD Music Teachers, or you can show up the night of the Gala at the Bassment and pay admission at the door.

We are also inviting all Senior Woodwind Players to join us as performers! The senior winds will be playing three songs to be rehearsed at the next division rehearsal:

1)Lean On Me           2)Beyond the Clouds           3)An Easy Winter Piece

If there are any Senior Wind Players that are available and interested in performing at the Resonate Gala, please let either Mr. Martin or Mr. Friesen know ASAP so we can add you to the list of performers.

Thanks and have a great rest of the week!
