Information/Instruments Meeting

All parents, guardians and students are invited to a meeting on Monday, September 26th at 7:00pm in the gymnasium at LeMarchant – St. Thomas School.


There, Mr. Daniel Burke, our Band Director, will formally introduce himself, explain a bit about the band program, and then provide demonstrations on a number of band instruments. Long and McQuade Halifax has graciously offered to help out by providing the instruments and demonstrations for the students.


Students will be able to try the instruments out for themselves before providing Mr. Burke with their choices of what they would like to play in the band. He will need a good mix of instruments to create a strong group, so it will be best for students to have a first and second choice ready.
