Grade 4-5 Athlone students are attending the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra on March 16th. Permission forms and information will be going home with students next week. The students will also have the opportunity to have a close encounter with a small group of WSO instrumentalists that will be coming to our school to perform for our students on March 13th. They will get to hear various instruments and have a question and answer session about what it’s like to be a professional musician in Canada. Start thinking about what questions you would like to ask those musicians!
Due to our involvement this year with the WSO and their children programming, they have offered our students at Athlone 50% off tickets to:
