Grade 7-8 band at École Fox Run School

They began with O Canada and finished with Star Wars. Students in the Grade 7-8 band at École Fox Run School delighted family and friends during their winter concert last Friday afternoon.

The group of 47 is the biggest band they’ve had at the school all in one class, said director Kristi Baldwin. “They’re one of the most unique groups, so respectful, a really great group.” Part of the reason they’ve come together so well is they held their band camp in October this year instead of the spring, she added.

Playing trumpets were Joshua Parenteau, Daniel Craig, Alex Harlos, an unidentified person hidden from view, Jared Miller, Erica Johnston and Ashley Tait. In the background on percussion were Tikvah MacIntyre, Kirsten Prelle, Serena Scott and Mason Hermanutz.
