It’ll Be Music to Their Ears!

Grade 7-8 Music Program launches at SHDHS

SHDHSMusic3 286x300 Itll Be Music to Their Ears!EXETER - South Huron District High School is very proud to announce that we will be adding a new Junior section to our music program beginning in September of this year. To complement the already well-established music program at SHDHS, this new addition will surely add to what has been a very important community program for more than two decades. Mrs. Carolyn Regier has been hired to teach the grade 7 and 8 music classes and is volunteering to start a Junior Band for grade 7 and 8 students. This band will play at all regular high school music concerts and integrate as part of the existing program. SHDHS high school music teacher and band director Isaac Moore says its hard to contain the excitement; “A grade 7-8 music program under the leadership of Mrs. Regier will add a completely new dimension to our program and school. I am so happy that students will be introduced to music even sooner here at South Huron and the new program will allow us to take students further musically in their later years at our school.”

SHDHSMusic2 300x261 Itll Be Music to Their Ears!As a startup program, the grade 7-8 students would be thankful for any community donations to help purchase instruments. Tax deductible donations can be made by contacting Mrs. Carolyn Regier at 519-235-0880. Any instruments purchased with help from individuals or organizations in the community will be recognized with an engraved donation plate on the instrument case.

The high school music program for grade 9-12 students is entering its twenty-eighth year.The program has seen major growth thanks to the time and effort of our students, faculty and community have invested in it. The SHDHS Senior Band has been invited to compete at MusicFest Nationals in Vancouver, British Columbia in May 2014! This challenge will keep us on our toes all year as we decide on our different pieces of repertoire, practice up on our sight reading, and get ready for the flight over the Rockies!
