Outstanding Music news!

One month ago, the St. Andrew’s Intermediate Concert Band and the Jazz Ensemble were selected to represent the Kiwanis Music Festival of Toronto at the provincial level. Each group submitted a recording of their two pieces to the Ontario Music Festival Association to complete against other Ontario school concert bands and jazz ensembles.

On Friday, May 29th the results were announced on the Ontario Music Festivals Association Facebook page and the news is good for St. Andrew’s.

For the Bands Class 1 – William C. Dawson Trophy category, the St. Andrew’s Intermediate Concert Band placed second of nine bands and won a scholarship for their performance. The first place band was a school from Ottawa.

For the Band Class 5 – Elementary School Jazz Band category, the St. Andrew’s Jazz Ensemble placed first and won a scholarship for their exemplary performance. Second place was awarded to a School for the Arts from London, Ontario.

Congratulations to all of the students who contributed to the success of our school and to Mr. Corbett and Ms. Kimm for their outstanding leadership in our Music program as we celebrate together this week.
