Day 1 was a fantastic success for the students in Grade 7-12 in our school division. Over 400 students worked through a brand new piece and split down to work with guest clinicians, including a fantastic lunchtime performance from a University of Saskatchewan Brass Quintet featuring members of the Saskatoon Symphony.
