Strathmore Secondary Big Band

Strathmore Secondary College has an extensive music program. As well as a high quality
“classical” program, which consists of a Symphony Orchestra, a Concert Band, a Classical
Guitar Orchestra and numerous instrument specific ensembles, there is a great “jazz”
program.

This program features two Big Bands. The music department at Strathmore have wanted
to give the students in these Big Bands a “real life” performance opportunity in a “real
life” venue. This is where the Post Office Hotel with its reputation for live gigs, great food
and great atmosphere comes in! This year will be our fourth year performing at the Post
Office Hotel.

On Thursday September 13th the Strathmore M1 and D13 Big Bands, both named after
their rehearsal rooms at school, will perform. The D13 Big Band consists of students from
years 7-11 who will play the first set on the night. Their set will feature jazz classics and
blues tunes. The M1 Big Band will take care of the next two sets with an array of tunes
from the swing and post swing eras.

Teachers, parents and the local community are all invited to this night.
