A huge congratulations to our grade 6, 7, & 8 band students who performed at the Downtowner’s Optimist Band Festival on March 22nd and 23rd. Our two concert bands and jazz band gave excellent performances and had the opportunity to work with some of Canada’s top band clinicians. A reminder to any students who have still not brought their $7 entrance fee for the festival to please submit this as soon as possible. Our grade 6 students have their next performance on May 9th, and our grade 7/8 students have their next performance and trip on May 16th. Stay tuned for information on these two dates. The date of the final band concert is May 25th so please mark your calendars!
