The grade 8 and 9 bands will be participating in the PEI Band Days Festival at the Delta Convention Center on lower Queen Street in Charlottetown on Wednesday, March 4th, 2020 . Full participation in this event includes performing, participating in a clinic with an adjudicator, and listening to other bands.
Students are responsible for arriving at the Delta on Wednesday ready to play, with their own instruments and music. Full uniforms, including black dress pants, dark shoes, band sweaters, and white dress shirts, are required for these performances.
All PEI Band Days performances are free and are open to the public. Parents, relatives, and friends of band students are welcome to attend. We would really appreciate having a couple of adult chaperones (one for grade 8 in the morning, and one for grade 9 in the afternoon) to help supervise the grade 8 and grade 9 students while they are at the Delta on Wednesday. If you can help out with this, please send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
