General Program Information
The Prairie Spirit (West) Band Program is a program available to students in Grades 5-12 serving the schools in Vanscoy, Delisle, Asquith, Perdue, Dalmeny, Langham, and Borden. The area has two band instructors:
Mrs. Marcy Racicot & Mr. Adam Streisel
The band program is aided by a dedicated group of band parents who co-ordinate band fees, help with the Christmas fundraiser, help with supervision at concerts, and generally support our band students.
Students are divided into 4 groups to accommodate the different skill levels of our musicians:
- Junior Concert Band
- Senior Symphonic Winds
- Jazz Band
In June, a band demonstration/orientation is held to give students the opportunity to hear and to try various band instruments. Students are welcome to choose any instrument they may be interested in playing.
