CMS Spring Concert 2017 Celebrates Canada 150

The Cochrane Music  Society Spring Concert, Celebration of Music,  is set for Tuesday, May 16 at 7:30pm in the Bow Valley High School gymnasium.

The CMS members are excited to celebrate Canada 150 in a program packed with music by Canadian composers. From the show opening 2016 arrangement of O Canada by Allan Gilliland (Edmonton) to “Stompin” Tom Connors’ The Hockey Song (arranged by Larry Nickel – associate composer of the Canadian Music Centre) and Wildrose Jamboree by Robert Buckley (Vancouver), the ensembles will showcase just a portion of the incredible array of Canadian music  available to choirs and bands.

The Band on the Bow concert band is especially anticipating their premier performance of City on Stilts by their very own member,  composer Corey de Baat!

Bring your family and friends, and a donation to the Cochrane Food Bank, and join us at BVHS for a fun and entertaining program as Band on the Bow, Riverside Jazz and Choral Waves alternate performance selections. Mingle with the musicians  during intermission where refreshments will be provided.

Let’s celebrate Canada 150 and  music together!
