Save the date of April 2nd in the afternoon as the National Capital Concert Band under the direction of Rocco Romeo presents a concert in support of St Basil's Capital Campaign.
This musical performance promises to shake you to your foundations with a wall of sound, as the band raises the roof with their bold brass, mellow woodwinds and driving percussion in equal measure.
What better way to support the capital campaign than to join in for this concert event.
Tickets are available through St Basil's Parish, at 940 Rex Avenue in Ottawa, or at the door.
Under the Direction of Rocco Romeo, NCCB Conductor

This was a musical life well lived and widely shared.
