Is Spring really on its way?

Post date: Mar 14, 2013 5:28:27 AM

Now that we're all really ready for Spring to show up - next week, maybe? - we have that wonderful slushy feeling to look forward to when all that snow melts..

We have our Spring concert date, by the way: Sunday, April 28th, 7:00 pm at Lakeview United Church.

Also, in the interests of looking ahead, Intermediate Band has been booked for Wednesday May 1st at a seniors' facility - details closer to the date.

Optimist Band Festival:

We have the schedule, so here's the scoop: (remember, for performances, we wear all black!)

Intermediate Band - plays on Wednesday, March 20th at 7:09 pm. You will need to be there, at the latest, by 6:15 pm. Note that we won't be having regular rehearsals that night, so please, take the opportunity to go hear them play if you can.

Senior Band - plays on Thursday, March 21st at 6:20 pm. You will need to be there, at the latest, by 5:30 pm.

****** Senior band members - after we are done at Optimist on Thursday night we will be going to the Western Pizza on Albert Street (across from Golden Mile, formerly Skara) for food and refreshments. It is half price appy night so all appetizers on the menu with be 1/2 price. Friends and family welcome as well. The room holds 50 people.******

For those that play in the MSM Senior Band - they play Thursday, March 21st at 5:42 pm. You will need to be there, at the latest, by 5:00 pm. If you're available, please go see them too - everyone deserves an audience!
