Week ahead – RESONATE WEEK!

Hello, 

This is an exciting week for music in PSSD. Resonate Student Music Conference is going online and begins on Wednesday. If you haven’t already please sign up if you are in grade 7-12 (or even if you want to and you are in grade 6). We have some INCREDIBLE artists coming to work with and do sessions with students all free of charge. With this in mind there will be no activities for grades 7-12 this week and next week. The activity is to attend some Resonate sessions and report back which ones you attended. PLEASE SIGN UP!

  • Brian Balmages (Composer)
  • Tania Miller (Symphony Conductor – Victoria Symphony)
