Residents thrilled with a recent school district choir concert

Kudos to Coreen Smith and the music teachers of the Vernon School District for their time and effort spent in producing the 2016 Choral Showcase at the Performing Arts Centre March 2.

As proud grandparents, we attended the 4:30 p.m. performance and were amazed at the childrens’ enthusiasm and the caliber of their performance.

It was a truly delightful show. This could only happen because of the teachers’ dedication and extra- curricular time spent.

The final mass choir, consisting of five  elementary schools, plus Seaton’s honour and show choirs, performing We Are The World was a heart-stopper.

Many thanks to each music teacher  involved throughout the day’s performances. You are giving these children a priceless gift.
