Concert Band remembering

November is the month to remember. Summer is over and the falling leaves remind us of seasons past.

The Comox Valley Concert Band invites everyone to come out and enjoy their show, aptly named Remembering.

November is the month to remember. Summer is over and the falling leaves remind us of seasons past.

The art of music carries in its strains the power to resurrect the past and to connect us with memories. Come and join your community for some great mid-day entertainment.

“It’s an inclusive theme that will permit us to explore memory and music; as well, as featuring some selections associated with Remembrance Day,” organizer Rick Powell states. “Patrick Hoenmans has chosen a beautiful mix of tunes for the afternoon.”

Guest bagpiper Esther Blackburn will play with the band for a few selections. Blackburn remembers her first memories with musical instruments.

“I was very young, only two years old. I was fascinated by the sound and presence of the pipers. Learning to play the bagpipes had been a very challenging proposition. I hope to stir up the audiences’ emotions as they listen to me perform.”

This entertaining show is a fundraiser for the Evergreen Club.  Tickets are just $5 each.

Please support the Evergreen Club and the Comox Valley Concert Band, two worthy organizations with a solid reputation in our community.

Did you know the CVCB has a long history all the way back to 1920 when it was named the Courtenay town band? In the late 1940s, the band abandoned its original military discipline (and lost the scratchy uniforms.)

The show is this Sunday at 2 p.m. with the doors opening at 1:30 in the Florence Filberg Centre, upper Conference Hall. Get your tickets through Courtenay Recreation’s Florence Filberg Centre.  For details, call 250-338-1000.
