Congratulations to the Senior Band on their Platinum award winning performance at Monday’s Music Alive Festival in York Region. Our 42-piece ensemble of mostly Grade 8 students alongside seven Grade 7 students performed two contrasting musical selections in front of a captive audience of students, parents and teachers. While our first piece, “Overlords”, was intense and aggressive, “In The Wake of Spring” offered a more lyrical and serene scene of flower blossoms and the warm sunshine of spring. The overall effect of the band’s performance was both balanced and transcending.
Congratulations to each student in the band for working so well together in achieving such a high level of musicianship, commitment and professionalism. Dr. Carnegie would have truly enjoyed listening to your performance and commended your hard work.
