More than 1,300 talented students in 23 different ensembles from across the Thames Valley district will come together to perform an innovative concert at Budweiser Gardens on Thursday, April 25th.
“This is not your typical school music night! Be prepared to be entertained, enlightened, emotionally moved and awestruck at the sheer number of musicians joining forces on the Budweiser Gardens stage,” says Kathy McNaughton, music teacher at Medway High School and committee member.
There promises to be something for everyone’s musical taste as concert bands, jazz bands, choirs, guitar ensembles and orchestras will showcase music spanning several decades and styles including cultural and movie music, pop, rock, jazz as well as contemporary concert band and orchestra repertoire. The program will also feature a collaborative effort by Beal, Clarke Road, Laurier and Saunders creating a large guitar ensemble performing a favourite Beatles tune.
To top it off, each half of the program will conclude with a performance from the TVDSB Honour Jazz and Honour Concert Bands, ensembles that combine the top musicians from across Thames Valley.
“Our mandate is variety and collaboration and this year is no exception,” says McNaughton. Thames Valley’s music programs are among the strongest in the province, with high levels of participation and dedicated educators. The program committee is comprised of faculty and teachers from various secondary schools throughout Thames Valley.
The event is sponsored by Canada Life and Classic Rock 98.1.
