Hello Spectrum Music Families,
I hope everyone had the opportunity to spend some time together over the Thanksgiving Holiday, rain or shine. It is incredible to think we are almost mid-way through October!
Thank you to everyone who attended our AGM, I want to welcome our new Executive members: Kirsten Wright as VP, John Hajecek as Secretary and returning members: Christine Surridge as President and Lori Robson as Treasurer. Lori has done a remarkable job in her time as Treasurer and wishes to invite anyone to tag along to learn the ropes. (This will be her final year and we would like anyone interested in fulfilling this position for two years).
The Spectrum Music Program has been running full tilt and I am very proud of what our students have been able to accomplish in the time we've been together. I want to thank all my students who have worked behind the scenes and stepped up when I am away. Bravo! With everything running on all cylinders, we can now move to bigger pieces of the program. Below is a list of annual events that are returning to the music program. Please follow the link enclosed and see if there is anything that piques your interest. The Spectrum Band Parents will receive your information and contact you accordingly.
