Inclement Weather Alert
Please be advised that band practice for Monday, November 11th has been canceled due to inclement weather.
ATTENTION MEMBERS: Due to tonight's wintry weather we are cancelling rehearsal. Please be sure to share this with all your fellow members to ensure that no one ventures out unnecessarily. We’ll be back to rehearsal next week (unless we get another storm).
Inclement Weather Policy:
If a rehearsal, concert or other event needs to be cancelled it will be announced by 5 p.m. the day of the event on the band's website: www.burlingtonconcertband.ca and our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Burlington-Concert-Band/301672761250. Further, if the City of Burlington decides to close the Music Centre, even after 5 p.m., our rehearsal for that night will be cancelled (when in doubt check: http://www.burlington.ca/en/Modules/News/search.aspx?feedId=6d2963ba-d54d-4fb4-9c61-dd333d22b1de). Please be sure to use your good judgment when coming to rehearsal during a snowstorm or other harsh weather event. If you do not feel it is safe to attend, then stay home. We'd much rather have you miss a practice than to put your life in danger.
