I will post the complete itinerary for Victoria tomorrow. In the mean time here is what you need to know. In order to catch the 8 am ferry from Tsawwassen to Schwartz Bay we must arrive at the school at 5:45 am to load the buses. It will save us time if on Wednesday evening you take your instrument home with you so we can load quickly Thursday morning.
We are staying at the Best Western Carlton Plaza in downtown Victoria. We are returning on the 11 am ferry Sunday morning. Our arrival time at Point Grey should be around 1:30 pm.
More to follow.
Packing list 2018 Edmonton
Check out this detailed packing list, probably provided in the past by Ms. Bone. Note in particular the current bitterly cold weather in Edmonton. As always, we will wear black on black for festival and concerts. You will also need a navy blue PG music t-shirt and/or hoodie. If you do not currently own any Point Grey Music clothing, please see Mr. Fleming and he may be able to help you out.
Here is the link to the itinerary as it stands today. Note the very early meeting time on the 13th. As you will see on the itinerary, all your breakfasts in Edmonton are covered as well as three dinners. You are responsible for all lunches as well as two dinners in Edmonton.
Edmonton 2018 Itinerary
Spring is always a busy time in the Point Grey Music Department. Here are just some of the events we are looking forward to:
This weekend, the Chamber Choir is off to Loon Lake for their annual retreat.
On April 13, very soon after spring break, Symphonic Band, Chamber Choir, Concert Choir, and Jazz A are travelling to Edmonton to participate in the Cantando Music Festival. On May 3, the 9/10 Concert Band and 9/10 Choir travel to Victoria for a performance tour and clinics at the University of Victoria. Stay tuned for the soon to be released official itineraries for both trips.
May 11 is our annual night of jazz. Some of our senior students have been busy planning the evening. We look forward to seeing current students, parents, and alumni.
