June 2018

Welcome Everyone !

This year has come to an eventful end!

We had a Silver Standing for the Orchestra and String Ensemble at this years Regionals as well as a Bronze and a Silver Standing at our Nationals this year. We had a great time and have qualified for next years National Music Fest ! In 2019 the MusicFest festival is in Ottawa.

We have decided to have our Performance trip extend from the Music Fest (One day in Ottawa) down to Boston for performances and fun! The Ottawa/ Boston Trip is from May 15th to May 19th. The Trip Proposal and Itinerary has been distributed to students for parental information.

I have attached the form for those parents who have not seen them as of yet. Please let us know as soon as possible so that we can know numbers for the trip and plan pieces for the National Competition.
