Singing at Altitude - Whistler Con Brio
On Thursday May 2nd, the Wind Ensemble embarked on a journey to the Con Brio Festival in Whistler, BC. After vigorously preparing for our performance in the previous months with the help of our lovely instructors, Mr Tristan Clausen and Ms Kathryn Als, we had the privilege of scoring a Silver title at the festival. With the guidance and expertise of our guest adjudicators, we also got the chance to improve our musical skills individually and as a group.
The trip allowed the musicians in the ensemble to expand their capabilities and grow closer to one another on a personal level. After watching an array of wind, jazz and choral ensembles from Canada and the US, we also had the opportunity to explore the village and community around us. It’s safe to say the trip was well worth it!
