Compact Disc

MAGEE MUSIC DEPARTMENT

Where music lives!!

         In June of 2002, The Magee Wind Ensemble recorded a compact disc called: Song of the Mountain.  The recording featured selections performed by the group throughout the year.  It also featured a few tracks by the Magee Brass Quintet.

         The front cover was painted by Emily Wong, a grade 11 student who played baritone sax in the Wind Ensemble and Sr. Jazz Band.

         I am very fortunate that I work with enthusiastic young musicians that constantly inspire me to new heights. This cd project was the musical mountain the senior students and I decided to climb during the 2001-2002 school year. The journey had its challenges, but it was worth the effort. I would like to thank my students for their hard work and commitment to this project. We recorded these selections in two evenings before final exams started. We hope you enjoy it.

         The Magee Wind Ensemble is an auditioned group of grade 10-12 students from Magee Secondary School in Vancouver, Canada. The group rehearses approximately 3 hours a week during the school timetable. CDs may be purchased by calling the Music office at (604) 713 - 8200, Ext. 7146.
