Who: Kamloops Community Band
When: Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 7:30 pm
Where: Kamloops Full Gospel Tabernacle, 1550 Tranquille Road, Kamloops, BC
It’s the Kamloops Community Band‘s annual Play Like The Dickens concert, all in support of the Richard Dickens Music Scholarship Fund.
The band was founded by Dickens – a long-time Kamloops school music teacher – in 2001 to provide a place for young people, teachers, retirees and other community members to play their instruments. Dickens passed away in 2009 and proceeds from this event will go toward the scholarship named for him, which provides $2,000 a year for four years to a student who has shown exemplary aptitude and achievement in music and is continuing in full-time music studies at the post-secondary level.
