Campbell Senior Music Tour 2019 - Banff, Alberta

The Campbell Senior Music Ensembles have been invited to participate in the internationally acclaimed Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival (CRMF) at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in April 2019!  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 11/12 Band, Senior Voices, Chamber Choir, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band 1, and Vocal Jazz 1 are included as part of “the team” on this excursion.  This will be a valuable and rewarding experience for all involved!


Wednesday, April 10 - Sunday, April 14, 2019.   


Performances on stage at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

Extended large and small clinics and master classes with world-class clinicians from across North America

Evening concerts featuring small ensembles and concert groups from participating schools and professional ensembles


The Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival is an invitational festival that provides a professional setting for top-performing ensembles from across North America.  The Festival is a showcase of outstanding ensembles who receive extended performance opportunities and world-class workshops with internationally-acclaimed clinicians.  This invitation-only Festival accepts ensembles that aspire to reflect this professionalism in every aspect of their performance!


We will travel to Banff on Moose Mountain Bus Lines coaches.


We will be staying at a hotel close to the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.


All breakfasts, lunches, and suppers while in Banff are included in the overall cost. 

Students will be responsible for all meals while en-route to and from Banff 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:  Working at CAMPA bingos is a great individual fundraiser - please contact the CAMPA Bingo Coordinator, Maureen Pennington, at 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 2018.  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

  • Friday, Sept. 28 – 5:00pm
  • Saturday, Oct. 6 – 5:00pm
