Happy New School Year! – Rehearsals start back tonight (September 14th)

Prairie Spirit East Music Programs

It is with great excitement that we are enrolling for another year of music classes in the Prairie Spirit East seven communities! With the East Division rehearsal set to resume next Monday, September 14, 2015, we are making plans for many more exciting musical opportunities in the coming year.  These are some opportunities you will not want to miss!

It is never too late to start or return to exploring music within the division’s musical community.  All students from grade 5-12 are welcome to join, whether you are in the beginning stages of learning an instrument, or have had some past musical experiences and desire to return to an instrument.

Please contact Mr. Martin at will.martin@spiritsd.ca or Mr. Ward at alexander.ward@spiritsd.ca if you have any questions, and to confirm your place in the music program this year.
