Twin Lakes musicians celebrate season of hitting right notes

'It was a wonderful year of making music together,' says school's music director, noting bands returned from MusicFest Canada with two silver medals

What a great year of making music for the Twin Lakes music department.

From concerts, competitions, awards, and guest performances, the Twin Lakes music department has been heard making beautiful music throughout Orillia.

Starting their performance season in October, the jazz instrumentalists and vocalists were a part of the headlining concert at the Orillia Opera House for the annual Jazz Festival.

In December, our Voices of Thunder choir was asked to be the guest artist of the Orillia Concert Band’s holiday concert at the St. Paul’s Centre.

All musicians could be heard spreading joy and cheer at our winter concert in December, having over 150 musicians cross our cafetorium stage to an audience of well over 400 people.

This spring, our senior concert band and jazz band competed against bands from across Georgian Bay at the MusicFest Canada regional competition. Both bands achieved a gold standing with an invitation to compete at the MusicFest Canada national competition at the University of Toronto. On May 14, both bands took the stage and performed with passion and energy, bringing home two proud, hard-earned silver medals.

All our musicians had another opportunity to perform in front of friends and family at our annual spring concert, hosting over 150 musicians, and an audience of over 400 people.

The Voices of Thunder choir finished their performance season by being the opening act at the Kiwanis Festival of the Stars concert at the Orillia Opera House. The choir, after their performance at the Kiwanis festival, achieved a gold standing with comments of having an extremely beautiful sound, attention to detail, and comfort in front of an audience.

The Twin Lakes music department directors are so proud of their Thunder musicians.

“It was a wonderful year of making music together,” says music director Christina Bosco. “Though many of our musicians will be graduating, we are confident that their legacy will inspire our future musicians who are stepping up into the spotlight.”

Keep your ears open for future concerts and performances gracing performance hall stages in the fall.
