ACA-Jam en spectacle will begin at 7 p.m. on June 12 in the Centre communautaire francophone de Truro’s black box.
The students have been performing since taking music together in Grade 10 at École acadienne de Truro and wanted to form a band. An successful application for a grant through Heritage Canada and the province’s culture department allowed the centre to hire Rick Hiltz as a project co-ordinator.
During Thursday’s concert, the students will have their first CD on site, a CD that came about with the help of students at the Nova Scotia Community College’s Truro campus.
The centre is located at 50 Aberdeen St., Truro, behind École acadienne de Truro.
