Our Spring Showcase Concert was fantastic! The concert was a Multicultural Music Event with a focus on Reconciliation and building bridges with all cultures.
Our special guests, Knowledge Keeper Kyle Snow and Gina Onespot, performed with Band on the Bow, merging their own songs and drumming with two classically composed pieces – “Cardinal Elements” and “Mother Earth – Spring”. The concert band also performed Latin American and Chinese-composed pieces.
Choral Waves choir was also joined by Kyle Snow and Gina Onespot in their Indigenous songs. The choir rounded out their music with Ukrainian and Czech tunes.
Of course, the Riverside Jazz band music is a culture of its own!
The new Indigenous Centre, Wazin Îchinabi Ti, attempted to raise their tipi on the grass outside Bow Valley High School in tribute to this reconciliation effort, but high winds prevailed instead.
Thanks also to Cochrane Foundation and Treasures For Your Home Society for their generous support!
We SO appreciated our enthusiastic audience who joined in the fun and helped us celebrate the music of a number of cultures Saturday, May 13!
