11 students from Beaver Valley Community School recently attended the Southampton Summer Music day camp, substantially sponsored by Thornbury Jazzworks.
SSM is an annual 1 week instrumental music education program with over 30 master teachers and professional musicians from across Ontario and the USA teaching instrumental, voice and jazz programs. This year SSM celebrated its 30th Anniversary as one of the most successful music camps in Ontario. A Gala Concert with all students participating in different ensembles and disciplines was enjoyed by about 300 people.
BVCS music teacher Melanie Kearns was proud that all Thornbury students were immediately accepted at the intermediate band level It was a pleasure to hear them perform at the final concert with such aplomb and enthusiasm.
