McLuhan Music Wins Gold, Silver, and Bronze


On Monday February 9th, both the Marshall McLuhan Concert Band and the Junior Concert Band competed at the Ontario Band Association Music Festival in Richmond Hill. The OBA Music festival is a MusicFest Canada affiliated music festival where 160 schools compete at this event every year. This year the Junior Concert Band was awarded High Bronze and The Concert Band was awarded Gold. Along with this accomplishment the Concert Band also won an invitation to compete at the Nationals for the second year in a row. Ralph Alconcel won the Music Leadership award for the Concert Band and Aysha Shanmugasundaram won the Music Leadership award for the Junior Concert Band. Congratulations to them and to all our musicians. Both bands will perform next at Kiwanis on February 24th.

While the OBA hosts the festival for Concert Bands, Humber College’s Next Generation Jazz Festival acts as the Regional MusicFest qualifier for the Nationals.  The McLuhan Jazz Band won Silver at their performance on February 19th and also won an invitation to perform at the MusicFest Nationals in May.
