75/742 Air Cadet Squadrons 2nd Annual Year End Band Concert

75/742 Air Cadet Squadrons 2nd Annual Year End Band Concert

A Cause Worth Humming For 

Do you prefer Mozart’s music or pop songs? Or is it Pipes & Drums, military marches or movie themes? Regardless what makes you hum along, there will be something for you on May 4th & 5th at the Uplands Site Military Chapel with the 75/742 Band Programs second annual concerts!

The 75/742 Band Programs have a variety of ensembles that will certainly make you want to go back in time and join them. Ensembles include the Pipes & Drums and Brass & Reed bands, as well as a quintet, a quartet, singers and soloists!

This year’s concerts will be held at the Uplands Site Military Chapel, 337 Breadner Blvd, Ottawa, on Friday & Saturday, May 4th & 5th from 7-9 pm.

But, there is more! The Band Programs also see their responsibility as leaders with the community, and it is for this important reason that they decided to collect donations at the door (suggested $5 per person). By being with us, and by sharing this opportunity with your circle of influence you could also help us support our selected charities of choice: our local Food Cupboards. All profits will go directly to those in need, giving our Band Programs cadets (and you!) a feeling of achievement and of good citizenship.

May 4th donations will go to the Barrhaven Food Cupboard and May 5th donations will go to the Kanata Food Cupboard.
