We have two rehearsals left before our last concert of the year, Fiesta!
Directly after our final rehearsal on the 19th of November, we will be holding the Annual General Meeting (AGM) for NSWS. Please stay behind at this rehearsal if you can, because it’s important that we meet quorum, and we also want you to be involved as members of the community!
Hopefully a lot of you are already keen to come along, but it would be even greater if some of you are also keen to join the committee. To do so, all you need to do is nominate yourself for one of the positions listed at the bottom of this email, either before the day or even at the meeting, where it’ll be voted on. Running this band is lots of fun, and involves great people, so don’t be afraid to get involved!
Send Angus (our current secretary) your nominations, either through Messenger or via email at [email protected].
Our concert is on Friday the 24th of November at 7pm. Call time for players is 6:30pm, at the Leslie Hall at Barker College. As per usual, greenrooms will be the classrooms near the hall.
Attire for this concert is colourful! Pick something bright and colourful to wear (you can wear black performance pants if you like) and let’s have a fantastic time.
Please share the details with your people! It’s a fun concert for all ages, so let’s get a big audience for the end of the year. Under 16’s attend for free!
