“60’s Spectacular – A Night at Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club” on March 13

It is time for the annual Big Band Dinner and Dance presented by the Bowness High School Music Parents Association. Every year the students and parents of the Music Department transform the cafeteria into a banquet hall for this show. There are performances by the Concert Band, Choir, Vocal Jazz and Jazz Band. The evening starts at 6:00PM with dinner at 6:30. After dinner we clear a dance floor and the Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz students perform a variety of music. There is also a silent auction to raise money to support the many activities of the Music Department. For more information about tickets please contact Earl Clayton at 403-286-5092 ext.2133 or To find out more please view our poster here.
