After completing a highly successful 35th anniversary concert schedule last year, the Delta Music Makers are embarking on an ambitious lineup of new music and concerts in 2019.
Over the years the band has become a mainstay for lovers of music residing in Delta and surrounding communities.
“When I started the band so many years ago, little did I know we would be continuing to this day,” says Curt Jantzen, founder of Delta Music Makers. “We’ve always strived to provide aspiring musicians with a friendly, creative environment to expand their musical abilities and to give audiences the best music possible.”
In addition to a regular concert schedule, the Music Makers will also host the annual Ladner Bandfest on June 1 and 2 at Memorial Park.
The band is always on the lookout for new members, especially trumpet and clarinet players, with at least high school experience. Even if you haven’t played for many years, the band will help you catch up.
Rehearsals take place Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at Delta Secondary in Ladner. If anyone would like to join the band they are asked to contact Jantzen at email@example.com.
A list of concert dates will be published on the band’s website, www.deltamusicmakers.org, and in future editions of the Optimist.
