MAY 2021

We are continuing our history of jazz instruments by Mark DeJong. Mark has now started part 2 of the history thus far highlighting Piano, Bass, and drums. These latest additions are part of ONE WEEK AT A TIME under Distance Learning. Now that many schools are distance learning please check the ONE WEEK AT A TIME page for all sorts of great ideas.

The last few weeks of April were like old home week for the festival! Many people had recordings of past performances at the festival on facebook. I know we would all love to be back in Banff enjoying the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival but it’s nice to remember all the great festival experiences. For now, we have many fond memories and looking forward to many more to come.

Enjoy your final seven weeks of the school year. These have been difficult times but teachers and students have done a great job adapting to all the new challenges. Let’s all be positive that next school year will be a new and rewarding experience.

Stay well,

Willie Connell

Executive Director
