Welcome to the 2014-2015 Season of the New Westminster and District Band Society:
It is exciting to remember that we are celebrating over 81years of community music!
I am so excited to be returning myself for another year of playing clarinet, and looking forward to reuniting with old friends and meeting new people as our rehearsals begin again next week. On behalf of the executive, we welcome back our band directors John White, Kevin White, and Adam Jones for another season of brilliant leadership and music making.
I’m also very pleased to announce that the Senior Concert Band has been invited to play for the grand opening of the new Anvil Center in New Westminster on Sunday September 14th beginning at 12:00 noon – come on out and support the band society!
Returning members, don’t forget that you can now earn credits towards your fees by referring new players into the Intermediate and Senior bands so, spread the word, and bring a friend!
See you soon,
NWD Band Society President
