1. Year End Concerts- Wow, what a great way to end the year! Starting with the morning band concert, on Tuesday morning- it was so great to see so much of the school, staff and non-music students, in the audience. The music students definitely saved their best performances for their families, as the evening band concert was such a thrill. All of the groups had such strong performances.


On Wednesday evening, last week, we welcomed choirs from Rogers and McKenzie, as well as Strings students from Cloverdale, Marigold, Northridge, and Strawberry Vale, into our school. What a great evening of collaborative music making. A highlight for me was definitely getting to conduct Mamma Mia- with all three choirs. 


Congratulations to all of our Grade 8 music students for all of their contribution and commitment these last three years!
