Campbell Band 9/Choral 9 Music Tour 2020
The Campbell Grade 9 Music Ensembles will be traveling to Red Deer and Drumheller, Alberta to perform at various schools, participate in workshops, and perform at public venues. Because the Campbell Music Program is performance-based, the music tours are an integral curricular component of the program, and provide extended performance opportunities. All members of the Grade 9 Band, Grade 9 Voices, Jazz Band 3, and Vocal Jazz 3 are included as part of “the team” on this excursion. This will be a valuable and rewarding experience for all involved!
Thursday, May 7 - Saturday, May 9, 2020
Performances at local schools and public venues in Red Deer
Clinics with internationally-recognized clinicians
Tour of the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller!
We are planning to travel by Moose Mountain Bus Lines coach Buses.
We will be staying at a local hotel in Red Deer.
The hotel will provide breakfast. Hot and cold items are available. Group suppers will be included in the overall cost.
Students will be responsible for all lunches and snacks while en-route to and from Red Deer on the buses.
In order to provide this opportunity and keep costs down for individual students, it is important that every member of the Campbell Music Family support the CAMPA group and individual fundraisers in some way. Please check for group fundraising events posted on the CAMPA website: campa.ca. Working at CAMPA bingos is a great individual fundraiser - please contact the CAMPA Bingo Coordinator, Maureen Pennington, at email@example.com if you are interested in earning funds to offset your personal tour fees. Each person working a CAMPA bingo earns 50 trip reward points, which equates to $50. For example, if you have 4 people working one bingo for you, you can earn $200 toward your tour fees in one bingo evening! If you currently have funds in your family’s account, you will have received a statement during late August 2019. All bingos are held at Centennial Bingo (2311 2nd Avenue) and the upcoming bingo dates are listed below. Additional dates will become available throughout the year and are posted at campa.ca.
