Don’t Hide From Winter – Come Dance!
Warm up by dancing to the Lethbridge Big Band at An Evening at the Bluenote on Jan. 20 in the Students’ Union Ballrooms. Festivities start at 8 p.m. and include door prizes, a silent auction and great music.
“We invite everyone who enjoys dancing and having a good time to join us,” says student Foster Garrett, one of the organizers. Dress is formal, so this is a great time to pull out all the stops.
Proceeds from this annual fundraiser support the annual tour of the U of L Wind Orchestra. The group of about 75 students under the direction of Dr. Thomas Staples (Music) is touring to communities in Manitoba and Saskatchewan this spring.
Tickets are $20 each or $140 for a table of eight. Tickets are available from Leister’s Music, Note-Able Music and Breeanne Somerville, administrative support, Music Conservatory and Faculty of Fine Arts Public Relations, in W810, Centre for the Arts. Somerville can be reached by phone at 403-329-2304.
