Leave for Cuba

We also did some great community service as we sang at the Ryerson Senior’s Christmas Luncheon, we sang at a service at St. Stephen’s United Church, and we went on a mini tour and sang concerts at 4 local elementary schools.

 

We also sang our annual concerts with the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir and the Little Night Music Orchestra – both concerts were sold out and filled their venues to capacity. Wonderful music making throughout!

 

January is going to bring a couple of retreats for the Evolution Choir and the String Orchestra at the end of the month, but other than that, it’s just get back to work month and getting stuff prepared for our fabulous tour to CUBA in March!

 

February will bring our massively awesome annual Magee Market Fair which will take place from 5:30-9:30pm on Friday February 10th. Come out and partake in all the wonderful food vendors, our fabulous silent auction, the many games and activities, used book and cd/dvd/blu ray sale, cake walk, teacher sponge toss, and many more family fun time events!

 

Following that, the Chamber Choir will sing the ever popular Valentine’s Song Grams on Valentines day – a perennial favorite that is always sold out way before the event itself. Then a great retreat scheduled with our great friend, Richard Nace.

 

Then at the end of February Magee will host the 4th Annual Vancouver School Board District Chamber Festival. At this event Chamber Choirs from all across the city will converge and present to each other in a warm and supportive environment of musical sharing and love. The inspiring adjudicators this year are Dinah Helgeson and Graeme Langager and we are excited that the guest group will be the Phoenix Chamber Choir.

 

Then it will be March and prep for our tour will be well under way and our farewell concert will be on Sunday March 5th at 2pm at Magee. And one more concert with the Little Night Music Orchestra on the 6th at 7:00pm with the String Orchestra and the MSO. Then we are off on a plane to Cuba where we will be exchanging with both professional groups and school groups. Senior Jazz band will open at a jazz club, Chamber Choir and Strings will perform with a professional choir in a gorgeous church, we will visit 3 different schools that are arts and music based, and we will explore the rainforest and other unforgettable experiences.

After that we will for sure need a rest before our concerts and festivals in April! We hope to see you at the Magee Market Fair, if not before!

Sincerely,

Greg Quan

Fundraising  Notes

Fundraising is just a part of the life here at Magee where we work hard to raise money to help our students have the absolute best experience that they possibly can without having to worry about how much it’s going to cost. So we have many opportunities for students to fundraise - many of which, the profits go directly into the student’s own account, while others go into scholarships or subsidies for tours.

 

Cheques should be made out to “Magee Music Society”

 

If you are wanting to get a table at the Market Fair to sell your goods, contact our music society to book now!

Early Spring 2017 Edition

January 5, 2017

 

Happy New Year! Welcome back! We are so excited for 2017 and the incredible things we have in store for you! This spring will be an unbelievably memorable year!

 

We hope that you had a great holiday and made some wonderful memories with friends and family. December was a fantastic month in terms of great concerts. We started the month with the Chamber Choir singing at the Learning Forward International Conference where they sung for over 3200 delegates, mostly superintendents and education ministers from all over the world. It was an incredible experience for us, the largest audience we had sung for, and to see a standing ovation from 3200 people is staggering.

 

The following day we had our annual Senior’s Tea. It was very well attended with about 80-90 senior citizens from around the community. Big thanks to Jackie Henderson who continues to be an integral part of this event years after her last child graduated, and of course a huge thanks to the Magee Music Society and Volunteer Club and Evolution Choir members who helped serve and made this event merry and bright!

The next two days were our Junior and Senior Christmas Concerts. As always, they were excellent with some great surprises including a visit from the Grinch and the inaugural performance of the newly formed Magee Symphony Orchestra (MSO) that wowed the audience with a medley of Cowboy movie songs and the Empire Strikes Back. The Sr. Jazz band was particularly vibrant as was Mekal McGowan’s solo on the holiday favorite “All I Want for Christmas is You”.
