Our penultimate concert takes place next Wednesday, August 28 and the details are as follows:
Where: Shaftesbury Park Seniors Residence
905 Shaftesbury Blvd
When: Wednesday, August 28 – Warm up starts: 6:55 pm sharp
Please do your best to arrive at 6:30 pm so that we have time to perform the Band Shuffle before our warm-up. This is the place where we play in a bit of an alcove, so it’s a tight squeeze for us. We will definitely have to adjust ourselves to fit (and will probably end up with more narrow rows – my best guess is that we’ll need 5-6 rows).
Please be aware that there are an extremely limited number of visitor parking spots on the property, but there is a sidewalk that runs from Litchfield Blvd (turn south onto Litchfield from Taylor) to the residence as a bit of a shortcut. Parking on Litchfield has traditionally been reasonably easy. It is a bit of a hike, so please allocate some extra transit time to account for the constitutional.
- Millennium Band (forest green) t-shirt and black lower body covering – this is preferred.
- Forest Green top, black lower body covering.
- All black
22 – The Stripper
70 – The Maple Leaf Forever
66 – Arctic Fire
69 – City of Dreams
44 – Glee Showstoppers
7 – Swing the Mood
This is also the time when I have to remind everyone that if you cannot make the Sept 8 concert (it’s a SUNDAY – at NOON), then it is time to return your music lest I sic the Manitoba Millennium Band Enforcer upon you. Please, before you hand in your folder, ensure that all pieces are back in numerical order. This will make the Librarian’s job MUCH easier!
I hope to see most of you out!
