Thanks to a grant given to Notre Dame Collegiate by the MusiCounts Band Aid Program, we have been able to complete our Marching Percussion inventory, but even more exciting ...
Introducing the New NDC String Ensemble!
The grant, funded in part by a contribution by Canada's Great Kitchen Party through the MusiCounts Band Aid Program, has allowed our school to purchase 3 cellos. The result is that we can make a String Ensemble available to students without having excessive instrument rental costs!
Students who wish to play Violin, Viola, Cello or Bass can join this ensemble with a minimum of a rental cost. As violin and viola rentals through Long & McQuade are very affordable (especially as they will only be for 2 months this school year), we are using the new cellos from this grant to make renting those instruments affordable as well (A violin rents for approximately $25/month, a viola is similar, but a cello is usually much more expensive through Long & McQuade, so aspiring cellists or bassists can rent through Notre Dame Collegiate for only $27.50 per month).
Your student is invited to participate. If they have filled out the survey indicating their interest in Strings, I have automatically added them to my list. If they have not, please send me an email to sign up for the ensemble. Already we have a well-balanced group, so I am quite excited to get this show on the road!
Violin/Viola/Cello/Bass Rental Night March 28 at PSTIs!
Our representative from Long & McQuade will be in the school on March 28 during Parent-Student-Teacher Interviews from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM to rent violins and violas. The rental policy with Long & McQuade is the most economical option available, so new violin and viola students need to rent through them. Cellos and Basses can be rented during the same window of time with a representative from Notre Dame Collegiate.
First rehearsal - April 2 After School
We will hold our first rehearsal on April 2 after school until approximately 4:30 PM. See your students then!
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
