|"There's a band! And there's carollers! And it's Christmas!! Combine those all into one, and you're guaranteed an evening celebrating the holiday season the very best way possible - with lots of music!|
The 2A Connection Ensemble is a new community band for the towns along/connected to the 2A highway. Under the direction of Teena Wilks and Barry Valleau, the 2A Community Band is an adult, all levels, community band. The exciting thing about this band is that it brings together musicians from Mountain View County and beyond - musicians who loved playing as youngsters and are thrilled to be back playing as adults.
The band has a full complement of woodwind, brass, percussion and string bass musicians, all accomplished musicians who played in a band when they were younger.
Add in Didsbury's own A Touch of Grace trio and their medley of Christmas carols, and you've got an evening that will definitely put you in the spirit of the season.
Along with the Valley Voices, special guests this evening include Olds High school drum line by Chelsea Pederson, Kevin Fraser Pipe Major of the Airdrie pipes and drums, and other special singers.
Everything takes place on Monday, December 10th beginning at 7 pm at the Didsbury High School gym (1515 - 15th Avenue). There is also a Christmas mini market as well!
Admission is free; donations will be accepted.
Help spread the word by inviting your family and friends. What a great evening this will be!
