Beyond Brass

Big Band, Swing, Jazz, Funk, Motown and Soul

Join us for an evening of entertainment as we join the Kamloops Community Band, Brocklehurst Secondary School Jazz Band and the Kamloops Rube Band with all proceeds going jointly towards the Richard Dickens Music Scholarship Fund and the Donald Bennett Music Legacy Fund.

Dick Dickens was a long-time Kamloops school music teacher. He 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.

Don Bennett leaves a rich legacy of music & education, having spent over 35 years in music education, as well as being an active musician in our community. Don played with the Kamloops Symphony for 26 years and was active in Beyond Brass (Kamloops Big Band), Vancouver Philharmonic, Orchestra Viva, Okanagan Symphony, and Prince George Symphony. Locally he was also the conductor of the Thompson Valley Orchestra and co-conductor of the Kamloops Community Band. The Donald Bennet Music Legacy Fund will help provide financial assistance toward the purchase of services to enhance community-based music events of all kinds.
