Band This Week: March 4-9 / Sister Act Show Week!

Band This Week: March 4-9 / Sister Act Show Week!

Hi Team!

Thank you to our drumline for performing for the Grade 6 basketball game on Friday night at the school! Those kids and their parents absolutely LOVED you – so many of those kids left the Reynold gym saying – “I want to be a drummer!” Super cute!  See me at the end of the week for a Timmy’s card from the coaches! 

Congratulations to the cast, crew, production team, and pit band of Sister Act! We had a long weekend but it was incredibly productive! The band is playing so well on a tough score! Remember that these are the same charts that pro musicians play on Broadway or on The West End… these are not “arrangements” for school band. Please know how proud I am of ALL OF YOU for taking this on and succeeding with flying colours! Enjoy the run of the show and stay healthy!
