Foothills Concert Band is proud to be taking part in the event that celebrates the new Riley Park Entertainment Shell (800 12 St NW, in the SW corner of the park). Sunday, June 24 from 1 to 4 p.m., there will be a free band concert put on by Calgary Wind Symphony (1 p.m.), Rocky Mountain Concert Band (2 p.m.), and your very own Foothills Concert Band (3 p.m.). In our segment, we will also be honouring the history of Foothills as we complete our 50th season! Thanks to the City of Calgary for partnering with all three bands to create such a great event — this will be the first time since 1980 that the three bands have shared the stage. We look forward to seeing you there!
