More thinking has been added to the decision announced last month in this column. Our Band-Aid session posponed till January 30th and 31st will take place over two days. The first day, Saturday will be similar to last year, reading sessions and clinics making use of our guests Elliot del Borgoand Warren Barker. An afternoon concJ;!rt involving the Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra and the True North Brass is planned to cap off the first day's activities The Sunday session will be new. Community bands will be invited to participate i'n mass band sessions conducted by Messers Barker and del Borgo. This opportunity is a notto-be-missed chance to work with two of the most widely used writers of the last fifty years. La~t year's session with Robert Smith rehearsing the teachers' wind ensemble was an inspiration for this new idea in community band involvement. There is something very special about working with the creators of the music you are playing. Plan to attend this session if you are at all ·interested in playing your instrument. The cost for ~his session will be minimal. It will be a fine opportunity to make and renew friendships. CBA is very enthusiastic about this new idea and hopes that the band community will .support the session wholeheartedly. It is anticipated that there will be enough participants to make up two mass 'bands of upwards of 100 players. The exhibits from the Saturday session will be available for the Sunday participants to browse and there will be much opportunity for people to socialize and chat with musicians you haven't seen for a while.
