Didsbury Jazz Festival Reminder and Update

posted Oct 28, 2012, 5:20 PM by Luciano Barbieri   [ updated Oct 28, 2012, 5:27 PM ]
Following up the e-mail I sent earlier this week, there is one change to our itinerary for the Tuesday Nov. 20 Didsbury Jazz Festival. We will need to depart at 11:00 AM instead of noon, so that we can attend the noon concert in Didsbury and our scheduled listening of another group at 12:45 pm.
Dear BCHS Jazz Band Parents,
This e-mail is another reminder of our Jazz Band's participation at the upcoming Didsbury Jazz Workshop Festival. Here are the details once more:
  • Tuesday November 20
  • depart from school at noon. Students can bring bag lunch or go through drive-thru on the way out of Airdrie.
  • Performance is at 1:30at Didsbury Zion Church, followed by adjudication, followed by instrumental masterclasses.
  • Afterwards, depart for Olds and have dinner as a group (students will have to bring cash for this - most likely eat at Boston Pizaa in Olds).
  • Evening concert at 7 pm at Olds TransAlta Theatre, featuring the Ray Charles Tribute Jazz Orchestra. We will need to be the door at 6:30 pm.
  • Depart for Airdrie after, return to BCHS approx. 10:30 pm.
  • There will be NO Jazz Band class the following morning on Wed. Nov. 21.
The following students have turned in their consent form and/or $26.00 which covers registration and evening concert (this information has been updated since Jazz Band class this morning).
  •  Karsten Anderson - form and cash turned in
  • Myles Card - form and cash turned in
  • MacKenzie Morphew - form and cash turned in
  • Cynthia Nikolov - form and cash turned in
  • Nicholas Willies - form and cash turned in
  • Sydney Pryor - form and cash turned in
  • MacAualay Carefoot - only form turned in (need money)
  • Jordan Doerkson - only form turned in (need money)
If your son/daughter is NOT on this list, all effort must be made to turn in the consent form and/or money by next Tuesday Oct. 30. With the fee - they can give me the cash, or pay by debit/credit at the school office and bring me the receipt.
The following parents have graciously volunteered to act as drivers for the students for this event, and have turned in the Volunteer Driver Application Form (will need a copy of the Driver's Abstract if you have not done so already):
  • Lars Anderson
  • Perry Neis
  • Denise Willies
We will need at least two more parent drivers in order to safely transport the 20 jazz band students that we have. Please let me know at your earliest convenience if you are able to do this. ALSO - to all parent drivers, please confirm with me that you are attending the evening concert. Tickets for parents are $20, but can be paid at the door (I just need to let the organizers know how many adult tickets we need).
Thank you for your continued support! :)
