Dear Aubrey students, staff and parents,
What a beautiful series of concerts you performed in the week before the holiday.
Mrs Heard and Mrs Adam were so very proud of what we were all able to accomplish together. We are looking forward to lighting up the Spring with lots of fun music to come!
Divisions 1-4 are working on memorising this two-part arrangement of Ivo Antognini’s “La Mia Stella”… We are so grateful to Lucrezia’s mom for helping us with the Italian pronunciation.
Here is a good recording to help you practice: PRACTICE RECORDING
I am so looking forward to another year of music making with our Aubrey students. Check back often for news of exciting things happening in our music room at the end of the hall.
Wishing all our students and families a wonderful summer!
Divisions 4 & 5 are preparing to participate in the Burnaby District Intermediate Choir Festival in April. T-shirt order forms are due back by MONDAY MARCH 27th.

February 22 2017 We united our voices in song to stand up against bullying. THIS is the video we used.
