In April, almost 200 young musicians came together to learn and play at our LRSD Guitar Celebration. Day 1 saw 100 High School students gather to attend 5 workshops of different guitar genres including classical, rock, blues, bass, and singing/songwriting. Winnipeg musicians came in to teach the clinics while our expert guitar teachers supported student learning.
Day 2 & 3 brought in almost 100 grades 7/8 students to work with Garth Rempel of Miles Macdonell Collegiate. The students spent 2 days with Garth playing in a large ensemble as well as working in smaller sectional groups. The event culminated in a standing room only concert featuring the Junior High ensemble as well as select High School groups.
Guitar programs in Louis Riel School Division are taught by an exceptional group of musicians/teachers. We are so proud of the programs we run and we can safely say we have the strongest and largest guitar program of any division in Manitoba.
