End of Season Note from the Outgoing Conductor

last updated 11:31pm May 31, 2015

The Halifax Concert Band is currently on summer hiatus until September. We welcome new members on any wind or percussion instrument for next season. Please read the Membership Guidelines on our website before contacting the director.

The next rehearsal of the Halifax Concert Band will be on September 8 at 6:30 until 8:30 in the band room at Halifax West High School. Please note that this rehearsal will be for people who were members during the 2014-2015 season. Prospective NEW members should come to the rehearsal on September 15.

We have an appearance booked on Saturday morning, September 12 at the IWK Hospital outdoor fair, aka the Kermesse. Music from the "Funny Books" will be used. The rehearsal for that event will be held (as stated above), on September 8. No dues will be collected that night.

The concert on May 26 was a glorious event. It was very rewarding to have had such a fine performance at the end of a difficult year. Watch for audio clips of our spring show, coming soon to YouTube. We will send you notices of these postings as they happen. Looking forward to great things next season and working with our new conductor. Thank-you for your friendship and your support, everyone.
