Vancouver Tri-Service Cadet Military Band – May & June 2017

The aim of this initiative is to form a Tri-Service Cadet Military Band made up of Army, Sea & Air Cadets from units across the 5 Vancouver zones, to perform in both stationary and marching formations in June 2017. The ensemble will begin weekly rehearsals after the Lower Mainland Band Competition on 13 May 17, with performances occurring between 16 to 18 Jun 17 at various locations across Metro Vancouver. Notably, under the organization of Lt(N) Carl McLean (RDA Trg O), the ensemble will also be performing at the BC Highland Games in Coquitlam on 17 Jun 17. The ensemble will be under the joint direction of Lt Brian Hwang (655 RCACS) and I.

Due to the short timeline between the commencement of rehearsals and the performances, cadets participating in the ensemble must exhibit above average musicianship and demonstrate proficiency performing in a marching ensemble. Therefore, auditions will be held to help ensure selected cadets will be able to keep up with the pace of the rehearsals, and perform to the capability of the best cadet musicians in Metro Vancouver.

Auditions will be held on 11 & 12 Mar 17 at Col. Sherman Armoury (5500 No 4 Rd, Richmond, BC). Interested cadets are to complete the following steps in order to be considered for selection:

  1. Cadets are to sign up for a time slot to audition, utilizing the following link: (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c044baaaf28a5fa7-vancouver)

FTX Hawks Nest Cancelled

Due to the weather, road conditions, and the amount of snowfall out in the Chilliwack area, which has accumulated to over 2 feet of snow, the Squadron Staff has determined that the FTX for this coming weekend is too risky given the nature of the FTX.   

We hate to cancel any event, but the safety of the cadets is our primary concern. 

As of right now cadets is on for tomorrow evening, dress will still be civilian clothing.  This may change as the day progresses.  Stay tuned for updates.
