Music

The Sir George Simpson Music Program is a dynamic place where students learn and develop skills as musicians and performers. Students choose from a wide variety of brass, woodwind and percussion instruments and begin the exciting journey to becoming instrumentalists. Many opportunities are planned throughout the year for students to participate in. Our year calendar looks like this:

November Grade 8&9 Remembrance Day Assembly
Nov/Dec Grade 8&9 Festival of Trees - Edmonton
December All grades Annual Christmas concert
January All grades Two-day band camp - Lake Nakamun
February Grade 8&9 Anthem at Oil Kings hockey game - Rogers Place
March All grades Elementary school performances
April All grades St. Albert Rotary Music Festival
May Grade 8&9 Spring tour - 4 or 5 days
June All grades Annual spring concert

Aside from the technical skills learned, students experience a team-like atmosphere where everyone is a highly-valued member and an integral part of the success of the group. Most students take all three grade levels in their junior high school years, making close friendships and memories they will never forget.
