Garibaldi band students are loud and proud downtown on Friday.
Garibaldi secondary students will be playing a music marathon in Memorial Peace Park on Friday, starting at 1 p.m. and running for seven hours until 8 p.m.
Instead of most schools’ traditional concert in the gymnasium, Garibaldi decided to bring its music to the downtown core for everyone to enjoy.
Over a quarter of the students in the school are involved in music in some way, and they will have concert bands, jazz bands, guitar soloists and groups, a choir and vocal jazz all taking turns performing in the bandstand.
There will also be a robot demonstration by the school’s robotics club, and some activities for kids while the music plays.
“Bring your lawn chairs and join us,” says a school release. “Hot dog combos will be available for $5, and we’ll finish the concert with the drawing for a new Lenovo laptop computer (tickets available during the concert).”
