Thank you so much to all of the parents and guardians who supported students in the band program this year. It was another challenging school year, but I believe the students still made excellent progress and hopefully they enjoyed making music together through all of the ups and downs! I’m really looking forward to next year and a return to a regular band experience which will include more concerts, field trips, and provincial events.
Thanks to your generosity at the concert, we were able to make a $600 donation to the IWK foundation from the East Wiltshire bands. Thank you to Synthia MacEachern and Susan Morse for collecting the donations at the door on concert night.
If your child has registered for band camp this summer, please check this blog and the band camp website for information. All students who are switching to new instruments in the fall (saxophone, percussion, etc.) were asked to attend the beginner camp unless other arrangements have been made. I have 40 intermediate and senior students registered for the camp so they will find lots of their friends there!
The band camp registration link for EWS students can be found here. Late registrations will be accepted until tomorrow at 3:00 p.m.
