YK1 celebrated with music on May 25 with the Music Showcase concert held at the Northern Arts and Cultural Centre. Our school band participated by performing a medley from Pocahontas as well as performing "Star Wars" with the Grade 7 and 8 band students from William MacDonald School. We managed to stuff 65 kids, instruments, chairs and stands into the music room for a rehearsal in the afternoon! No small feat! Thank you to all who attended the concert. We hope you enjoyed the show!
The $10,000 Musicounts grant has been put to good use. With the money we were able to purchase three new saxophones, three new trumpets and four new clarinets as well as replacement guitar strings, band and choir music and portable music stands. The students are delighted with how good they sound on the new instruments and how smooth they are to play.
