Parkland Gardens Performance 2 pm Saturday, Oct. 19/2019
Here are the details for our upcoming performance this Saturday, October 19th, 2 pm at Parkland at the Gardens (5732 College Street)
The concert is in the Great Hall which is a shared space between the Parkland residence and All Saints Cathedral. Our entrance for performers is through a side door off Cathedral Lane at the back of the parking lot for All Saints Cathedral.
Our performance starts at 2 pm and so I am asking that all band members please arrive by 1:15 pm through the performers entrance. We do have a warm-up room for cases and coats which is just inside the entrance door to the right. Dress for the concert will be our HCB band shirts with black pants/skirts and black shoes. Also, please bring your own music stand for the performance.
Parking is limited to a few spaces around the church and on the streets surrounding Parkland. There is also a pay-and-display lot just to the west of Parkland which may be a good option if parking is hard to find.
For people involved in set-up prior to the concert, I would ask that you meet at the Great Hall at 1:00 pm to help with chair set-up and equipment moving and placement, etc.
