From Mr. Corbett:
On Tuesday November 18th, the Senior Concert Band will host the Festival Wind Orchestra (FWO) for a combined rehearsal and concert. The FWO is a non-profit community concert band whose members are amateur musicians. They rehearse Tuesday nights at Riverdale Collegiate.
This is the itinerary for the evening.
5:30 potluck dinner / homework / set up for FWO
7:00 rehearsal with the FWO
8:30 parents come to the cafeteria to listen to the performance
The benefits for our students:
- performance skills will improve with the extra rehearsal time
- senior students will have opportunities to lead some of the rehearsal
- experience food from a variety of cultures
- examples of how adults have found a place for music in their lives
