2016 University of Saskatchewan High School Select Wind Orchestra

Congratulations to Blaze Schmidt and Kristina Rance who were invited and took part in the 2016 High School Select Wind Orchestra performing at the University of Saskatchewan this afternoon.

This is the 13th year the U of S has put on this tremendous event to showcase the best High School band students from the north of Saskatchewan and have them work both with University Faculty and clinicians. Blaze and Kristina were among 80 students, including three from PSSD West, that took part in rehearsals Friday night and all day Saturday before performing to a packed crowd at Quance Theatre.

The concert also featured music from Dr. Peter Meechan (also pictured above) who worked with our PSSD bands last year and will be at rehearsal tomorrow night in Clavet to record the band for a special new commission that will be performed out our Spring Fling Concert later in the year.
