Radical Inclusion

Some days not everyone feels up to working.  When that happens at The Big Sound, we continue moving forward, comforted in the knowledge that when absent friends return, there will be someone there to help them get back up to speed.

The Big Sound loves music and WE ARE EVER SO THANKFUL to MusiCounts for their generous support in providing instruments for our program at Hillcrest Elementary School. @MusiCounts

The Big Sound Program at Hillcrest is cancelled today, February 13th

All RURAL buses to Owen Sound schools are CANCELLED, Environment Canada is predicting snow squalls and blowing snow with amounts ranging from 15cm to 30cm today and tonight, so we fear it is another snow day.

Hopefully this will end soon and we can return to our regularly scheduled programming.

The Big Sound Welcomes Matthew Hayes

As Robin, Hillcrest Centre Director, takes a break to enjoy a new member to her family we welcome Matthew Hayes to The Big Sound team.  A graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University, Matthew is a wonderful addition to our collaborative effort to invoke social change through music.

P.S.  It was Pajamas Day at Hillcrest!

Way to go Arya!!

A Big Sound shout out to Arya for her idea to read a book to the class.  We’ve been talking about respect and acceptance lately and Arya has demonstrated leadership by selecting books that help us all understand things like diversity.  We’re so proud of you Arya!!!
