Band celebrates Canada’s birthday

Salmopn Arm Community Band brings familiar tunes

The Salmon Arm Community Band is gearing up to celebrate spring in Canada.

Dust off those winter doldrums with the band as members celebrate 21 years of making music together.

Like many musical groups across the country, the intergenerational band has chosen to feature music that honour Canada’s 150th birthday.

Musicians are putting the finishing touches to a delightful lineup of familiar Canadian melodies, with a tune or two whose heritage will surprise the audience.

The concert plays out at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13 at The Nexus at First United Church.

Band members are also excited to have been invited to play at Canada Day celebrations and at the grad opening of the Montebello Museum in July.
