Bringing The Mentor/TEAM Community Together Through Music

Last week, I wrote about how I don’t need to be in a music classroom to “hear music all around the school” but next week, I will be able to hear and see the arts all around me!

The annual Festival of Arts will see students from all divisions of the school taking part in the concerts on Wednesday and Thursday evening. I am excited for two new groups to make their on-stage debut (the TEAM Bucket Drumming Ensemble and the Mentor Grade 9 Jazz Band) and to see some of the students who were on stage in 2005 with the Primary Campus Chorus now playing in the Senior Band or singing in the HS choir 11 years later!

For those wishing to stimulate their visual senses, Mentor artists from Grade 5 to 11 will have their works displayed throughout the school. Take a wander through the hallways and you can see how the art department develops the artistic side of our students whether they are sketching, painting, sculpting or creating multi-media installations.

Finally, the graduating visual arts students from Mentor and TSS will open their show “Roots of Steel” at 6:00pm on Wednesday. The show is open from 6:00-9:00 on Wednesday night and then again on Thursday from 9:00am to 9:00pm. The students have been planning this show and working on their exhibits since September and they would love to have you come and discuss their pieces with you.
