FORT SASKATCHEWAN & AREA AMBASSADOR BAND RETURNS FROM ICELAND
The Ambassador Band wrapped up its recent trip to Iceland with a May 31st Friendship Concert at the Central Lions Recreation Centre in Edmonton. The Albertans were hosted by 3 bands, toured the sights and experienced activities like horse riding, whale watching and hiking during their week-long stay. In Reykjavik, the capital city, they performed a joint concert with the Svanur Band in Harpa, the new seaside concert hall. They ferried to Heimaey and presented a community show with the Westman Island Community Band. In Thorlakshofn, the whole community turned up at the sports hall for a joint concert with the Thorlakshofn Town Band. The Ambassadors were impressed by the beauty of the landscape, the warmth of the hospitality they were shown, and the Icelanders' commitment to and love of music. They look forward to another tour in two years.
