WORKSHOPS AT THE HALL


SCREEN WRITING WORKSHOP A GREAT SUCCESS

Whoever thought writing a screenplay could be easy!! Sharon Buckingham shared her vast experience and skills with a group of nine participants this past weekend at a cultural campus workshop called “From Idea to Screenplay in Ten Easy Steps”. This workshop was presented by The Parrsboro Band Association under the umbrella of Parrsboro Creative. Our participants came from Cape Breton, Fredericton, the south shore of Nova Scotia, Bass River, Ottawa as well as from our local area.


The workshop started on Friday evening and continued throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday. During the weekend, Ms. Buckingham shared many examples of her own work to illustrate the techniques used in writing a successful screenplay. Participants were divided into small groups to tackle particular aspects of the work and then came back together to share what had been discussed. Even during their shared lunch, participants could be heard actively discussing what they had learned that day with great enthusiasm!

Coming next in September in the Workshop Series at The Hall is this exciting opportunity to learn a capella from the very best as "Cadence" will present an a capella boot camp

CITIZENS' CHOIR AT OTTAWA HOUSE FOR CANADA DAY


The Parrsboro Citizens' Choir once again represented the Band Association at the Canada Day celebrations at Ottawa House.  While the weather failed to cooperate completely a good turnout sang along as the choir presented several much loved tunes.  

There was of course a special anniversary piece of music prepared by the choir to recognize the 100th anniversary of the Handley-Page crash landing.    The audience responded with laughter when we tore off into a rendition of "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines"

GOOD WEEKEND FOR THE HALL

It was a good weekend for The Hall as it hosted the exhibit for the finalists in the competition from the Plein Air Festival.  The gala to announce the winning selections was held on Saturday night and Sunday morning the doors opened to admit the public for a viewing of all the entries.    This was a 'no charge for admission' event and a steady flow of people came through to see just what was produced by these incredible artists, in spite of Parrsboro being on the receiving end of no less than 115.1 mm of rain on Friday.

An estimated 250 -300 people came to view the works before the doors closed at 4:00 pm.

HOOLIGAN'S RUFF ENTERTAINS

The Concerts in the Park series also continued as Hooligan's Ruff took to the band stand and entertained an appreciative crowd from 7:00 - 8:00 on an absolutely perfect summer's evening (if not completely bug free).   The crowd slowly swelled as the sound of the entertaining music rolled out of the park.


Concerts in the Park will continue next Sunday, June 30th with Carl Cameron.   Hope to see you all there.
