The Big Sound Program at Hillcrest Elementary School is Cancelled for January 30, 2019

We have been advised that the Bluewater District School Board has advised parents that the afternoon buses have been pulled and they are requesting parents to attend the school to pick up their children as soon as possible.

See you tomorrow, hopefully!!

Gabi’s Sax

Many thanks to Gabi, one of our stalwart volunteers, for introducing us to her saxophone last week.  While everyone starts out on the violin, the plan is to eventually expand to all the instruments of the orchestra, so this was a great learning experience.  

Exhibit AND Performance

WOW!! Despite the Arctic like weather we’ve been experiencing, 2019 just keeps getting better.  On Saturday we had a terrific turn out to the exhibit of the paper violins The Big Sound team from Hillcrest made last fall.  Not only that, but Centre Director Robin Zettel led the kids in their first public performance which was met with rave reviews!!!  WAY to go everyone!!!!

Another Big Sound thank you to the Kim Skene and the Tom Thompson Art Gallery for hosting us during the build and at yesterday’ exhibit and performance  @tomthomsonartgallery

Also, a big shout out to the Community Foundation Grey Bruce @communityfoundationgreybruce for their support, our friends at Home Depot @homedepotcanada, and all of our trusty volunteers.

We Just Love the Focus on These Faces!!!!


Way to go Audrey!!!
