SUMMER BAND 2012 >>>> S U M M E R B A N D !!! <<<<

Are you looking for an enjoyable way to mix with a diverse group of musicians and “keep your chops up” in air conditioned comfort? The LaSalle Summer Band will be meeting Tuesdays through the summer in a supportive atmosphere. The music will span a range of difficulties so that hopefully everyone feels a sense of accomplishment and is also stretched a little!

1. Where: Kingston Curling Club – Days Rd just north of Front Road.

2. When: Every Tuesday June 26 – Aug. 28,

3. Time: 9:30 am -11:30 am with a mid-practice break.

4. Conductor: David Smith – David has very extensive performing and teaching credentials. We are delighted to have him for this summer.

5. Cost: $40 cheque only – make it out to LaSalle Adult Band and give to Judy Wolfe-Labbé – in advance if possible. At this price, even if your busy summer travels have you missing a number of sessions, you would still get your money’s worth!

6. Music: everyone will get a named folder with their music on their first day.

7. Bring your music stand, a chair/stool (unless a chair with arms is OK), and a spit towel (sorry make that a “condensation” towel!) to go at your feet, to keep the floors dry.

8. Sign up on the sheet in the LaSalle music room or contact Karen Wallen (kawallen) no later than May 24th.

See you June 26, 2012 at the curling club.

A message from David Lysne and the LaSalle Causeway Swing Band

“The LaSalle Causeway Swing Band will be providing live entertainment for a reception

honouring South Frontenac Community Service volunteers this Wednesday from 5:00-6:00 pm at the Grace Centre in Sydenham.

The Sydenham organizers extend a warm welcome for friends of the band to attend the event.

The address of the Grace Centre is 4295 Stagecoach Road. Please enter through the side door,

next to the parking lot. For those who know the area, the Grace Centre is in the former United Church on Stagecoach Road.

The organizers are in the process of renovating the former sanctuary so the event will be taking place in the renovated basement.

In order to get to the Grace Centre from the 401, the best route is to take the Sydenham exit (#613) – go north until you hit Rutledge Road.

Make a left at Rutledge and then another left at Stagecoach Road. The Grace Centre is on the right hand side, opposite Clinton Dentistry.

There is parking next to the building. If the lot is full, you can also park on the street or on the field next to the building.”

Thank you on behalf of the Causeway.
