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!

Montreal

As Ms. Chen and Mr. Fleming wait for the final students to submit their second payments for Montreal, and those students should do so immediately, it is time to think about the final payment. The total cost for the tour is $2600 plus 55 dollars for insurance. For most students the final payment will be $1000. However, if you didn’t pay the 55 dollars with your original deposit it must be included in your final payment. Please inquire with either Ms. Chen or Mr. Fleming regarding what your exact final payment is. We would like to collect this final payment when school reopens on January 7th.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Fleming or Ms. Chen at the school.

Alumni Night

A reminder to all ex-Point Grey Music students, alumni night is Wednesday June 20 at 6:30 pm. If you were once a member of the Point Grey Symphonic Band, dust off your instrument and we will try and remember how to play…. something. If your instrument has mysteriously gone missing, I can probably loan you something for the evening. It’s a great opportunity to reconnect with some of the people you spent so much time hanging out with in our little band room. As always, we will play for a while and then go catch up at the Manchester on Broadway. So reach out to your classmates and invite them along. I am expecting, but not promising, an appearance by a certain former band teacher. See you there.
