Congratulations to all music teachers, you survived September! Many of you have said it was so great just to be back with your students. Conditions in our schools are all over the place, from schools being allowed to perform but adhering to strict covid guidelines, to schools that do not allow music at all, and everything in between! The Festival Advisory Committee continue to monitor the situation in each province with an eye towards how the festival can best help in this new reality of music education. We are looking at possibly doing something on Zoom and the possibility of a virtual festival. Covid-19 continues to affect everything in our schools. The unknown makes the future difficult. Hopefully things will settle down soon so we can start to plan for the school year. Please check back next month for a festival update.  

Stay positive and stay well!
