What a great community event this past weekend! For a quick peek at the fun check out this video of the audience dancing a ceilidh to “An Irish Party In Third Class” from the movie Titanic.
Save the date – Thursday June 16th, 2016! AGM will be at Jackson’s home.
The members of OCB that were able to play during the daytime took the time to perform for 4 elementary schools: Montgomery Village Public School, Orangeville Christian School, The Maples, and Spencer Avenue Public School. The performance included instrument demonstrations – learning about woodwind, brass and percussion instruments, and a variety of music styles from around the world. Of course we played some music from popular movies too!
Our musical director, Joy Spencer, had the opportunity to chat with Mat Boisselle on 88.1 Erin Radio on Thursday, December 17th. Take a few minutes and listen to their discussion about our upcoming Christmas Concert in Erin here.
This years Christmas Concert was a huge success! It was an evening filled with festive music to help us all get into the holiday spirit (even with the lack of typical holiday weather!). Click here for a lovely write up from Snap’d Dufferin. Looking forward to brining the show to Erin this week with our special guests Young at Heart.
President Julie Wood joined the hosts of Up and Coming on Rogers TV this week to discuss the Orangeville Community Band and our contributions to the community. From what I hear there were lots of laughs! The piece should begin airing December 2, 2015. Check the Rogers TV website for dates and times that Up and Coming is aired.
