Great work last week, everyone! WOW!
The Potestatem Jazz Combo performed for the “Growing Pains” Grade 12 art gala opening at Cedar Hill Rec. on Thursday night! The combo was so well received that people sat down and listened to their show after viewing the art. Way to go!
The Junior Jazz Band did an outstanding job at the McKenzie Elementary School Fair. You could say they were “outstanding in their field!” ;-) Go easy on me, I’m a trombone player. In all seriousness - really fine work folks. Thank you to all the parents and grade 11/12 students that helped support this gig by driving gear, and taking in the show.
Finally, the Marching Band nailed it at the Oak Bay Tea Party Parade! Congratulations on winning first place this year! The ranking isn’t important, though - what is important is how prompt you were, how organized you were, and how well you played and marched! This was truly a wonderful end to our 11th parade season. Thanks to all the parents that helped with hair braiding, flag transport, and "bandie wrangling."
1.) Year End Concert - MONDAY Night, 7pm at Oak Bay High School
Please read the Running Order for more information about this concert.
Students need to be at Oak Bay High School for 6:00pm (or earlier). PLEASE give lots of time to get there as this is a new performance venue for us and I’d like to make sure that there are no “hiccups.” Maps and parking maps are in the running order. :)

Enjoy! Your kids have put in some amazing work over the last couple of weeks.
