2020 Portland/Seattle Refunds

Refund cheques were put in the mail on Friday, December 4. Thanks for your patience while the insurance was dealt with. A reminder that the insurance cost was $80/person. If you had paid in full your refund should be $1370, less than that if you had not. If there are any issues with your refund, please send a message to our accountant, schang@vsb.bc.ca.

As always, you may contact Mr. Fleming if you have any other questions.

PG Music Hoodies and T-Shirts

The clothing store is currently closed. We will open it again in the new year. There were a number of students who ordered shirts last year and didn’t pick them up. They are in the music office and will be available for pickup when school starts.

Jazz Band A &B 2020/21

While much of this year’s schedule is still up in the air, I can report that both Jazz Bands will continue outside of the timetable for the entire year. We will be rehearsing in the auditorium, while socially distanced, and following the protocols outlined by the VSB and the BCCDC.

Jazz A will rehearse Monday morning and Thursday afternoon. Jazz B will rehearse Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Unless something changes, rehearsals will start on September 17 for both groups.

Winter Concerts

The Winter Concerts are almost upon us. This year we have two dates, December 11th and 13th. December 11th will feature Junior Strings, Junior Choir, Grade 8 band, Grade 9/10 band, the Senior Combo, and Jazz B. The 13th will feature Jazz A, Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Men’s Choir, Senior Strings, and Symphonic Band.

We look forward to seeing students, parents, and alumni on those dates. Happy Holidays!
