Salt Spring Concert Band
Friday, April 29, 7:30 pm
April is all about new beginnings, pale green shoots reaching for the sun, new 
life and transformation. The Salt Spring Concert Band with director Dawn Hage 
will explore the musical possibilities of this theme in Awakenings taking place at 
ArtSpring on Friday, April 29. The concert will feature both traditional and 
modern compositions from Sheep May Safely Graze by Bach to Awakening Hills 
by Richard Saucedo. The performance includes gorgeous multi media 
presentations to complement both Earthdance by Micheal Sweeney and Laputa 
– Castle in the Sky by Joe Hisaishi and poetry readings in the Awakenings 
theme. In addition, the virtuosic Luanne Katz will display her mallet talents 
when she joins the percussion section of the SSCB for this special concert. Loch 
Lomond, Lord of The Rings, When Summer is Just Beginning and Paradiso 
round out this stunning and not to be missed concert of music that will awaken 
the spirit and the soul. ArtSpring, April 29, 7:30 pm.
