Music News

December was very exciting for the SJF Music students. We had visits from members of the National Arts Centre Orchestra and some touring musicians. Throat singer Sylvia Clouthier gave a presentation to General Music and Northern Studies students about her Inuit heritage and her job as a touring throat singer. Kimball Sykes, principal clarinetist with the orchestra gave a workshop to the clarinet and saxophone players of the band and our music teacher, Susan Shantora and the choral music class had a conducting workshop with the Artist Director and Principal conductor, Alexander Shelley. 
The Sweet Sounds of the Season concert was a huge success with over 65 students on stage performing. Congratulations to Ms. Shantora and the music department for all the wonderful music!
