Second Chances Community Band Concert; Made up of folks who played an instrument growing up, who want to pick it back up again, and have a second chance at playing it. Led by Rowan Fitzgerald; Spring Concert, Dr. Steel Recital Hall at UPEI, Sunday, 2:30 p.m.
A new concert band for adults who are rusty from years of musical neglect is about to begin in Charlottetown, PEI.
Kudos to Rowan Fitzgerald, Allie McCrady and John MacDonald for initiating such a wonderful thing for our community.
For many decades, the instrumental music programs of PEI have been producing passionate musicians. While some of these musicians have made music an integral part of their professional careers, many others said good-bye to their music-making upon graduating high school. Last fall, Holland College began a concert band program to help provide a performance opportunity for musicians who may not be pursuing music as a career, but who still love to play. This band performs at a high school level and has been steadily growing in numbers since it’s inception one year ago.
