THREE TERRACE schools recently returned from MusicFest Canada — a five-day-long, three-stage music festival which showcases leading talent amongst young Canadian musicians.

This year, musical ensembles from Skeena Junior Secondary School, Thornhill Junior Secondary School and Calendonia Senior Secondary School went to Richmond, near Vancouver, where the event was held from May 16th to the 20th.

Each attending ensemble was issued an invitation to the event for meeting certain performance standards. At MusicFest, the bands were judged again and either rated gold, silver, bronze or merit status.

Cal’s choral division received bronze status, and special recognition in the form of an honour award went to Jeremy Lopushinsky.

Cal’s concert band received silver status and honours went to Deklan Corstanje who plays the french horn.

The school’s jazz band received silver and honours went to saxophone player Nick Leffler.

Skeena Junior’s concert band received gold status, signifying excellence in all aspects of performance, and honours went to piccolo player Kennix Li.

Its jazz band was rated gold as well, with honours going to Graeme Linton who plays the tenor saxophone.

Thornhill Junior’s concert band was given gold status, and honours went to Tristan Holleufer who plays clarinet.

Thornhill Junior’s jazz band won silver status and Tristin King was awarded honours.

A special thank you from teachers goes to all the volunteers who drove and chaperoned this trip.
