We have just received the quotes for the proposed Wind Band tour to Belgium in July 2020 and therefore need to hold a meeting of the ‘ Friends’ as soon as possible. This will be held THIS Thursday (3rd October) from 6pm-7pm in the Meeting Room in A Block. All interested parents/carers are more than welcome to attend.
Other items to be discussed (given time) will be finance, fundraising, bookings and a review of last year.
Cumbria Music Hub has secured a year’s partnership with the amazing National Youth Jazz Orchestra – those who have been lucky enough to go on workshops with them before will agree that the days are not only a great learning experience but great fun as well. I really recommend any player in the Swing Band should try and attend at least some of the sessions.
The days for the year are: 28 September, 2 November, 25 January, 14 March, 2 May & 20 June. And they take place at the North Lakes School (10am-4pm) in Penrith so car-sharing for participating students would be an idea!

Swing Band’s first rehearsal of the year will be THIS Friday from 3.40-4.45pm.
Please could all current members make sure they are present as well as any other grade 6+ players who believe that they should also be in the band this year (check with Mr Butler beforehand if you are unsure).
Wind Band’s first rehearsal will be on Monday 9th from 3.40pm-5.00pm: again, all current players should be present. If you are playing beyond grade 3 standard and believe that you should be starting in the Wind Band please see Mr Butler beforehand.
