A pop-up concert at Willows Beach Friday (May 11) saw students from across Oak Bay celebrating diversity in music as part of an 11-day concert series called, “Music in the Air/ Music Everywhere”.
More than 1,500 music students in the Greater Victoria School District will be performing in concerts across the region from May 6– 16, 2018. Students and their instruments will be popping up in city squares, parks, senior residences and shopping centres to sing and play for the community.
Friday’s concert at Willows Beach featured Ecole Willows choir, Monterey strings band, and Oak Bay High senior concert band.
Elementary, middle and secondary students in music programs are participating to raise awareness of, and engagement with, Greater Victoria School District’s music programs.
More than 30 student performances will happen during the festival. The concert series features choirs, string quartets, orchestras, ukulele ensembles, drum circles, concert bands and marching bands.
