I had the pleasure of being hosted by Principal Fonseca and Hillcrest School this evening. In addition to fine music from the Grade 7, 8, 9, and Jazz Bands, there was also performances by massed bands. Mr. Mallett, Hillcrest’s music teacher, added insight to the entertainment by explaining the difficulty of the pieces, and student teacher Ms. Straight ably conducted as well. The crowd favorite was “Rock Around the Clock” in which Mr. Doucet substituted for ailing drummer Luke.
The next opportunity to hear the band perform is at the Oil Kings game in January at Rogers Place!
Kudos to Brian and Dorothy for organizing the Band fundraiser (those chocolate covered almonds did not last long once I was home)!
It was also very nice to visit with Lori E., former Aldergrove School Council Chair whose children are both now at Hillcrest.
