Our Christmas Concert season will begin when Magee will be hosting the Second Annual VSB District Chamber Choir Festival on November 27th@ 6:30pm. This will be a delightful evening of incredible choral music from around the district. We will have some fabulous adjudicators: Dr. Adam Con and Fiona Blackburn, as well as some amazing music from the Vancouver Community College Madrigal Singers, under the direction of Gerry Van Wyck, and there will be a few surprises too!

 

Then you know it’s Christmas when we have our annual Senior’s Tea! This yearly event will take place on Monday December 8th from 1:30-2:30pm and is open to any seniors in our community or beyond. You will hear beautiful music from the Chamber Choir and Wind Ensemble as well as enjoy snacks and goodies in our wonderful Magee Atrium.

 

Then after performing at  a Senior’s Luncheon at Ryerson United Church on December 11th, the Chamber Choir will be performing with the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir at Shaughnessy Heights United Church on Saturday December 13th. Please look for tickets at

www.vwmc.ca/events - this concert ALWAYS sells out, so be sure to get your tickets early if you would like to attend this fantastic night of music.

 

The next morning we will be singing a Christmas Service for our friends at St. Stephen’s United Church and then on Monday, December 15th, we will be performing our annual Christmas Concert with Maestro Peter Stigings and the Little Night Music Orchestra. That concert begins at 7:30pm in our  Magee Auditorium.

 

Then our Junior Christmas Concert will be on Tuesday December 16th and our Senior Christmas Concert is two days later on Thursday December 18th. Both concerts begin at 7pm and admission is STILL only $5 (for the past 20 years!)

 

We certainly are happy to be back working with your fine children and we look forward to an incredible year! Our senior tour this year happens in March and will take us to the United Kingdom where we will sing and play for audiences all over England and Scotland! Exciting things to come!

 

Hope to see you at one of our events and we look forward to meeting you!

 

Sincerely,

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!

Winter Edition

What an amazing and busy fall this has been! Great retreats and early concerts have contributed to all the groups really getting to making some exceptional music at an early stage in the year! Not only did we have great attendance at both our welcome nights and our Ryerson Fall Concert, but we also have been having some fabulous district concerts and the music department also put on a very poignant Remembrance Ceremony that really hit home and touched a lot of hearts.

Our annual Stringvitational was a real highlight already as we had 3 elementary schools, Lord Tennyson, Jules Quesnel and Jamieson, as well as Eric Hamber and a professional quartet, the Yaletown String Quartet. All were fantastic and it was so incredible to see all the levels represented there.

Before Our Christmas Season kicks off, we will have not one, but two incredible workshops for the Chamber Choir by two very distinguished educators. First on the 28th, Dr. Adam Con from the University of Victoria will grace us with his knowledge and spirit and engage us all in what is sure to be an amazing experience. And then, through the BC Choral Federation, we welcome Dr. Lee Willingham on December 3rd. Dr. Willingham is out in Vancouver from Wilfred Laurier University in Water loo Ontario to evaluate the Doctoral Thesis of our good friend Jim Sparks, who teaches at the Langley Fine Arts School and we are very lucky to be able to tack on this great opportunity to learn from Dr. Willingham.
