Youth to be featured

Norman D. Crerar, OMT Producer/Director (front right) recently caught up with Mike Jewett, Music Program Director (front left) and the Calgary Round-Up Band while in Calgary.

1967 was Canada’s 100 anniversary of confederation.  Here we are, fifty years later, and another milestone to celebrate.  Canada 100 had huge celebrations across our country and youth were very much at the forefront.  The celebrations for Canada 150 will be much the same and the Tattoo will do it’s part.  The 150 members of the Calgary Round-Up Band will be joined by approximately 200 cadets from the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Camp, Irish Dancers, Highland Dancers, a youth fiddle group and more.  It will be fun to witness the mix and match of youth performing groups with our adult performing groups.  We expect to have a record number of performers this year, somewhere in the 600 range!!
