Halifax Concert Band Message from Executive

On September 15, there was a Zoom meeting with the HCB Executive group. There was a review of the results of the Membership survey, which is attached to this e-mail. The basic message was that members were willing to try to get together, which was encouraging for us. We have researched the rules for Halifax West, the conditions for On-line rehearsals, some options for using other locations, and the recommendations from the Nova Scotia Band Association. We talked about the activities of other bands in the Metro area, and other items.
After consideration of everything we knew, it was decided that there are too many unknowns and unfavorable factors for band rehearsals at this time. We will review the situation late October to see if conditions have changed. We would like to have an on-line Annual meeting on Tuesday November 3 at 6:30 pm. A notification and Zoom link for the meeting will be sent out at the end of October. Pandemics are disheartening.
