Roots and Wings proudly attended the 2016 BC Cadets Honour Band concert at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby, BC last Thursday night.
During spring break top cadet musicians from Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, and Air Cadets are selected to travel from all over the province to CFB Esquimault on Vancouver Island. They train for a few days together before taking their show on the road.
This year's stops included performances at the McPherson Playhouse in Victoria, the Port Theatre in Nanaimo, the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby, and then the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre in Vernon.
Each free concert included several numbers by both the Concert Band and the Pipes and Drums Band -- as well as a couple of musical surprises like the guest appearance by the Mighty Wings Jazz Ensemble and a shark fin during the Jaws theme in the Hollywood Milestones arrangement.
Here are some video highlights from the well attended Burnaby performance:
