Have your Grade 3 class sing alongside the full Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra!
Participating Grade 3 classes prepare to sing four short selections in concert with the TBSO. Printed and recorded versions of the music are provided to the teachers in advance. Both French and English folk songs are included in the program – and for the first time ever, we are adding Indigenous folksongs to our line-up. In-school coaching sessions are done by classroom and music teachers with the help of one school visit by the TBSO’s Conductor-in-Residence, Simon Rivard. Our goal is to schedule these visits during the week of November 20 – 24, 2017.
In order to accommodate the large number of classes typically interested in participating, each school is scheduled to perform at one of the two 7 PM concerts and parents are encouraged to attend. Concert performance dates will be Tuesday, January 30, 2018 and Wednesday, January 31, 2018. The morning of the concert, students convene at the concert location for a dress rehearsal with the TBSO. Each small group (1 to 3 classes) sings the two special folk songs which they have prepared. All participants combine to perform two other music selections en masse.
Cost: $90 + HST ($101.70) per class. Invoicing of your school will follow the concerts.
Travel: Participating schools will be responsible for busing students to the concert location facility for the morning rehearsal.
Registration Deadline: October 20, 2017
