Welcome back to what most certainly will be a unique year!  As everyone starts a new school year this month you will have many challenges but I know you are all excited to be back with your students again.

Music teachers are a special breed of educators that will find a way to somehow keep the music playing for your students. The Festival Advisory Committee is looking closely at what is happening in each province. We will be developing a plan as to how the festival can best serve music programs in this new reality.

By the end of the month we all should have a better idea as to how the school year will develop. The festival hopes to offer a new experience for both students and teachers in the 20/21 school year. Please check back at the end of the month for a festival update.   

Stay positive and stay well!
