GISPA Music is on a roll. After two and a half months of getting to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, we have GISPA Music is on a roll. After two and a half months of getting to know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, we have become a tight knit musical family. The past few weeks have been very exciting. For one, we are already working on composing pieces for the year end production. Our collective minds are working hard together to find a certain atmosphere that will be presented inside the storyline. On Friday, November 2nd, GISPA Music had the amazing opportunity to be the opening act for Ashley MacIsaac at the Artspring Theatre. The performance ran very smoothly and was a blast. Before the show, we actually had a wonderul workshop with Ashley and his guitar player, Chris. This time was spent listening to Ashley’s wise words about the music business, and working together to compose a funky twist on an old fiddle tune, which would later be the closing act of the show. We were thrilled when Ashley invited us all back on stage to perform an encore – the perfect end to a great day. So far, GISPA Music has been on two field trips to see Train and Ed Sheeran live, and we are now getting ready to see Passenger live at the Vogue theatre on December 12th. After seeing him open up for Ed, we were so impressed by his stage presence and passion that we’re going to his own show. Two and a half months of bliss, six and a half to go. This year is certainly off to a good start for GISPA Music.
More to come shortly as the dancers and actors are also bringing in some high calibre workshop teachers and clinicians. Most of them appreciate the opportunity to come into Ganges in a float plane.
