Youth Concert
Host: Blue Door Concerts
Description: In conjunction with the Mountain View Arts Festival, Blue Door Concerts hosts The Minor Six with Opening Act is Camille Labrecque, The Violin Girl! This is a very special show that we're pleased to be hosting in support of the Didsbury High School Band Society! We've got a very talented group of musicians joining us. They've coined themselves "The Minor Six". See, 'cause they're all minors, and cause there are six of them, and also 'cause they are playing jazz. So it all makes sense in a way. Don't miss out on this show from some of the best young musicians around! Tickets for this show are $15, with all funds (once we've paid the musicians) going to benefit the Didsbury High School Band Society! This program gives so much value to the youth in our community and we're proud to support it! Tickets are available by e-transfer or e-mailing info(at)
Location: Blue Door Concerts, 2524 - 15th Ave, Didsbury - Doors Open at 6:45 pm, music starts around 7:30 pm
