Students host pop-up concert series across Greater Victoria to celebrate diversity in music.
More than 1,500 music students in the Greater Victoria School District will be performing in concerts across the region from May 6th – 16th, 2018. Students and their instruments will be popping up in city squares, parks, senior residences and shopping centres to sing and play for the community.
This is part of an 11-day concert series called, “Music in the Air/ Music Everywhere”. Elementary, middle and secondary students in music programs are participating to raise awareness of, and engagement with, Greater Victoria School District’s music programs.
“This is a great opportunity for community members to engage in our music programs collectively”, noted Board Chair Edith Loring-Kuhanga. “Over the years, school music programs have played a significant role in student learning while promoting musical competence across the District. Now, students can showcase their talents to the broader community through a shared musical experience.”
More than 30 student performances will happen during the festival. The concert series will feature choirs, string quartets, orchestras, ukulele ensembles, drum circles, concert bands and marching bands.
