The Sackville Citizen Band has been flourishing since it found a new home at Marshview Middle School in September of 2012. Membership has almost doubled during that time, and the performance level has also been reaching new heights of excellence.

During the past summer, the band performed almost weekly. Recently, they performed a Christmas concert for the residents of the Drew to a warm and enthusiastic response. Director, Paul Jensen, feels that the group is fast becoming one of the very fine community wind ensembles in the country. Many members in the band have studied music at the post secondary level and others have been lifelong musicians. Together, they bring a love and passion for the music that makes Jensen’s job as director a very enjoyable and rewarding one.
The band will give the people of Sackville and area an opportunity to come out and listen to them as they perform this Wednesday, December 11, at the Mount Allison University chapel. The concert will feature a mix of sacred, traditional, and upbeat swing Christmas numbers. They will also perform poignant and moving versions of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and “ I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables.
So come out tonight and kick start your holiday season to the sounds of your Sackville citizen Band as they perform in the lovely surroundings and wonderful acoustics of the Mt A chapel. Admission is free but a monetary donation or food item would gladly be accepted for the local food bank. Door opens at 7:00 pm for a 7:30 pm start.
