Quick Update for Families
Hello all! The year has begun nicely, and student musicians are making headway on their work for music classes. This is a quick update regarding deadlines that are fast approaching.
Marks will be entered into PowerSchool on the dates mentioned above. If a student has not completed an assignment, the mark will reflect the amount they've completed. A student can always upgrade their mark at any time.
Christmas Concert Announcement
As of right now, we have a restriction on the occupancy of our gymnasium to one-third fire code capacity. Unfortunately that number happens to be the same as the number of students in the music program, leaving no room for an audience. I need to plan for these events right now, so I've had to make the decision to operate a livestreamed concert.
This is not the same as last year. We will not be doing pre-recordings. We will also be playing copyrighted music (all standard Concert Band and Stage Band music is copyrighted, and so cannot be made available publicly even in recording - Mr. Windsor's arrangements last year were copywritten, it's just that he gave the school permission to play). As such we must do something different this year.
Our Christmas Concert is confirmed scheduled for Wednesday, December 8, 2021. We will be streaming from the gymnasium Live, and families will be able to watch from home. Here's what this means for you this year;
PROCEEDS GO TO THE HIGH RIVER CATHOLIC FINE ARTS PARENTS ASSOCIATION IN SUPPORT OF THE FINE ARTS AT NOTRE DAME COLLEGIATE.
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
