Some wonderful news for our Choral Department: Our very own Magee Chamber Choir has now been ranked as the #1 Choir in BC (from the BC Provincial Festival, Performing Arts BC) and #3 Choir in Canada (from the National Festival, Federation of the Canadian Music Festivals).


Also, our own Mr. Quan has been recognized by the Education Department of the University of British Columbia as one of their Education 100, as part of UBC’s centennial, to recognize their top 100 graduates who are making a difference in the community over the past 100 years http://educ.ubc.ca/alumni-supporters/year-of-alumni/educations-100/



And a reminder to parents of those students in the concert choir that the concert choir retreat will take place on Friday October 2nd from 9-3 at Shaughnessy Heights United Church at 33rd ave.,  just west of Granville and reminder that we are meeting AT THE CHURCH, NOT at school.


And mark it down in your calendars that our first formal concert will take place on November 3rd at Ryerson United Church at 7pm and will involve all the choirs, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and the String Orchestra. Admission is by donation and the donations will go toward scholarships for Graduating Magee Students. We sincerely hope to see you at one or more of our events.

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!
