Handsworth Music Concert Dates

2017/18 School Year

To All Music Parents,

This is a reminder of music dates for the year. These dates with the exception of the Festivals and the March concerts, “Strings Extravaganza” and “Wonderful Winds” are on the school calendar (blue) and on the web site. Please note that the Wonderful Winds concert on the calendar has been changed. The new date is March 14th in the school gym at 7:30pm. The Strings Extravaganza is on March 5th at Centennial Theatre. Festival field trips are as yet not approved.

All ensemble members are needed at all concerts.  Please avoid scheduling family activities on these dates.  If you have a conflict please contact the teacher as soon as possible.

Please note that the new Wonderful Winds concert is the week before Spring Break.  This is not the ideal time for a concert because some people plan trips just before the break.  If you have already booked or planned a work holiday for Mar. 14th please let Mr. Bradshaw know right away.

Thank you,

David Bradshaw and Sab Kabok
