There was the cold. Early morning on a fall Friday, gray clouds taking the place of the sun that we had so hoped to see. It was shortly before half past seven when the first child turned up at the door of the Saint James Music Academy, all bundled up, toque, mittens, and all. And then another, then another, then another more. By the time eight o’clock came around, one had become twenty-seven, ranging from the extremely sleepy to the extremely excited. The reason? The SJMA’s Intermediate Orchestra was heading to the Cheakamus Centre in Squamish!

A big thank you to The Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation for awarding $12,700 in funding to our ‘Exploring Music with Early Learners’ program which launches this fall.
Also, On May 6th, 2015, The Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation held its 60th Anniversary Celebration, which featured a performance by the Saint James Choir. The choir’s performance was generously underwritten by Genus Capital Management.
It’s probably the best excuse to get a new pair of shoes you’ll ever have! So come on by on June 25th between 6-930pm to try on a new pair, have some refreshments, and see the students of SJMA perform!
See you there!
