Grand Forks Secondary School band concert, carolling coming up

The concert is titled “Winter Memories”

The Grand Forks Secondary School band program is honored to take the community on a Christmas journey through “Musical Memories” on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. in the GFSS auditorium. The community is welcome to join students while they celebrate the memories of winter and explore the music that holds a special place in all of our hearts. The musical pieces they will perform are from all over the globe.

The concert will feature Grade 8, Grade 9, and senior bands, as well as a flute choir. There will be a bake sale and hot chocolate during the intermission, mug brownie gifts to purchase, and an opportunity to open a Christmas cracker for a chance to win a gift basket from the Board Room Café. The GFSS Band Committee has been working hard to design the decorations, emcee, and prepare for the concert.

Reminder: The GFSS band is carolling this week! Students hope to see you:

• Thurs. Dec. 13 – East of GFSS up to Riverside

• Mon. Dec. 17th – Valley Heights, Copper Ridge and Nursery areas

We hope to see you at our concert on Dec. 19; have a lovely holiday season!
