Music Ensembles filling the air waves!
Our bands, choirs and orchestras are back in action, albeit in a different format from the ‘usual’ … but nothing is really ‘usual’ any more, is it!?
The Middle School and Senior Choirs are getting together four mornings out of 5 each week to work on a couple of projects to create “virtual” digital performances. Stay tuned for those productions, coming to a FaceBook page or website near you very soon!
Jazz Band, Wind Symphony, Concert Band, Intermediate Jazz Band and Training Band have overcome the challenges of remote learning to see weekly rehearsals resume. These rehearsals are a chance for the students to say hello, have a play together, albeit with their mute buttons on, and to be given some guidance with their parts for ensemble. The students in attendance are arriving at 7:45 with enthusiasm and dedication to keep going with what they can at this time. It is lovely to see and hear all the students, and continue to feel a sense of community in our music department. However, we do look forward to the day when the halls are again buzzing with students at 7:30 in the morning.
