The No Strings Attached Community Band presents its Spring Winds concert June 11.
The show takes place at Lockerby Composite School’s McKellar Auditorium starting at 7 p.m.
This concert will feature a variety of traditional and contemporary marches, dances and film music compilations for Concert Band. The group will also showcase compositions by two Canadian women (Cait Nishimura and Anne McGuinty).
“Let the sweet sound of flute float your imagination like a “Red Balloon” (Anne McGuinty) and take you skyward with trumpets “In Heaven’s Air” (Samuel Hazo),” said a press release.
The No Strings Attached Community Band was founded by Sandra McMillian while studying at Laurentian University in 2001.
McMillan saw that there was a need for a community Concert Band in Sudbury to give amateur musicians a place to play, and more than two decades later, the band is still following this mandate.
The band is comprised of “students to seniors” providing a place for wind, brass and percussion (and the occasional string bass player) to pick up their instruments again or to just come practice in a welcoming atmosphere. It provides entertaining performances for the public, and has raised thousands of dollars for charity along the way.
Admission to the Spring Winds concert is "pay-what-you-can" with proceeds to the No Strings Attached band funds.
