Watch The Carnival Band Perform at TEDxVancouver 2014
January 15th, 2015
The Carnival Band and Blink Acro collaborated under the direction of Kelly Daines to deliver a powerful stage performance that opened the segment of TILT, the core theme of TEDxVancouver 2014. Zany, odd and high energy this performance epitomizes the moment you step outside of your comfort zone.
The Carnival Band is a community music project with fifteen years of history, based out of Commercial Drive’s Britannia Community Centre. Musical direction is provided by Ross Barrett and Tim Sars. Instrumentation for the band includes all range of brass, woodwinds, drums, percussion, accordions, and of course voice. The Carnival Band believe that in order to be effective, community music must be grounded in collaboration and empowering to each individual involved.
