Up Close and Orchestral

posted: Wednesday, October 12, 2016

On Wednesday, October 5, 2016, SJR students from Grades 5 through 12 had the unique opportunity to listen to a live performance from the WSO, Winnipeg's celebrated symphony orchestra. Led by Maestro Alexander Mickelthwate, the orchestra performed a selection of pieces for the attentive audience of students and staff as part of their 'Up Close and Orchestral' series - a program that allows students to experience an 'up close and personal' performance in their school from the musicians. Some of the students even had the chance to join the orchestra on stage and partake in the musical experience. It was a unique and musically impressive afternoon that the students will be sure to remember!
