November 2012 National Concert Band Festival

November 2012

 

 

Dear Parent / Carer,

 

As you are already aware, this year, the Senior Concert Band will be taking part in the National Concert Band Festival.  The Festival takes place in St Cripps Hall Theatre, Northampton School for Boys on Sunday 18th November 2012. 

 

We will be departing by coach from Corby Business Academy at 8.45am on Sunday 18th November and will return for 4.00pm.  Rather than return to Corby Business Academy directly after our class at 12.30pm, we will stay on, have some lunch (students will need to bring a packed lunch) and then have an opportunity to listen to the remainder of the Concert Band Festival as well as the Big Band Festival.  Students will of course be supervised at all times. This promises to be a great day out.

 

I have attached a detailed programme for the day for your information.  Students will need to bring a packed lunch and some money for a tuck shop.   You are more than welcome to join us in Northampton to listen and support the Senior Concert Band who will be performing in the class that starts at 10.30am.  There are a limited number of parental places on the coach for anyone that wishes to travel with the Concert Band.

 

I would be grateful if you could sign the form below giving your son / daughter permission to attend.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries,

 

Yours faithfully

 

Clive Wears

Director of Music
