Concert Band Music in Wolfville
Join the Wolfville New Horizons Band and the Kings Community Concert Band for an evening of Concert Band Music – Marches, Overtures, Pop Tunes, and some Classic Arrangements at 7pm on Wednesday May 10 at Festival Theatre in Wolfville. Admission FREE.
Did you ever hear a community band on your travels and think, gee I wish we had one in our town. Well, we do, almost! The New Horizons Band consists of supposedly seniors (youngers have successfully snuck in) who either played a long time ago and wanted to try again, or those who never played before and needed a little brain exercise and have a great love of music. We all have a great deal of courage! We have a leader, Brian Johnston, who teaches and taunts and cajoles and entertains us, and we all go home every Wednesday evening the better for it all. Home, by the way, is from one end of the Valley to the other. We pay a small fee every semester and we hold a couple of public rehearsals during the year to show you how super we are, with the hope of entertaining some of you and luring a number of you into the band. Then we have a big party for ourselves. I’m sure you would love to be a part of it all.
We are holding our Open Rehearsal on Wednesday, May 10. Joining us is the Kings Community Concert Band under the direction of Heather Davis. It starts at 7pm in the Acadia Festival Theatre and ends at 8pm – not too long! Please come and join in the fun. You’ll hear the Beatles, ballads, marches, classics – we try it all.
