Local Students Perform At Winspear

BGRS bands and choirs gave a great show May 8, 2015

Bands

For the third time in fifteen years, a successful event gathered dozens of regional students in an impressive concert performance and art display at Edmonton’s Winspear Concert Hall in Edmonton’s Downtown core, for the evening of Friday, May 8, 2015. This particular show featured high school students only, and seems to have earned unanimous appreciation by parents, families and concert-goers.

The Black Gold Regional Schools Division organized this awesome celebration of various arts in front of a large audience. Norm Dargis, the Black Gold Regional Schools’ Division Principal, was a key player, bringing together reps for each of the division’s high schools and coordinating the event with the dynamic cooperation of Mr. Don Steenwinkel, the Leduc Composite High School’s band leader and music teacher (LCHS).

There were bands and choirs, musical theatre with solos. There were short films and One Acts. There was also an impressive art display, including photography works, in the Winspear lobby. This was truly an awesome celebration of the talent of many of our local and regional high school artists.

Don Steenwinkel was the energetic MC of this memorable soirée, assisted by a Leduc Comp student, the lovely and articulate Gabbie Daneliuk. Together, they did a fabulous job introducing all the performers. Mr. Dargis shared that, “it was awesome to see such a large crowd totally immersed in the various aspects of art culture.”

We wish to send a warm congrats to a young friend, Jonathan Simpson and his sister Katherine, both of them proficient through years of study and practice of Old Time Fiddle music: Jonathan is also an LCHS band member.

Miss Carmen Stone, the new BGRS Communications Officer, was quick in submitting several photos for our inclusion, and we are grateful for her contribution. Congrats to all the students of our County and City who performed at that awesome Celebration of the Arts!
