IGS has been leading the charge to make music again safely. Wind Orchestra and Symphonic Winds commenced rehearsing in the hall and have been social distancing from each other. Bay Street Band rehearsed on the roof last Monday afternoon to applause and interested neighbours.
Tutors have noted a vast improvement and accelerated learning in many students as students participated in fewer activities during lockdown and were able to concentrate more on their music practice.
While the format of playing or singing in a large ensemble looks a little different, the children are extremely determined to make music and are very accommodating with cleaning all of the musical equipment.
We continue to make music together and adjust to the ever-changing conditions so that creativity and expression is given a chance to breathe safely at IGS
