Before school was officially over for the summer, I met up with Glynis Dawson, Department Head of Fine Arts, at Belmont Secondary School and Maureen Garry, a music teacher at David Cameron Elementary School to talk about music programs in their schools. Glynis also arranged to have the Belmont sax combo and a grad combo on site and prepped for a photo shoot for our August cover.
I wish you could have been with us for that photo shoot. The rhythm section started jamming in the background as we were setting up. Immediately, everyone in the room became more animated. What could have been a boring hour adjusting positions and attitudes for the camera, became a choreography of instruments filling up the room with an energy that made you feel like there was nothing else in the world that was more important—or essential—at that moment. Brilliant!
