Turnbull Concert Band earns Gold at Nationals

Nationals Toronto 2015 Pic 400W

Each year MusicFest Canada’s “The Nationals” brings together the finest young musicians from across the country to compete and showcase their talent. Our Turnbull School Concert Band, under the direction of Ms. Sheri Harrington, was once again invited to participate in this event, which took place in Toronto, May 11 to 16, 2015. After achieving a Gold Standard of Performance at last year’s national competition in Vancouver, B. C..

the band was unsure if they could recreate the magic and earn gold for a second year in a row.  With a year full of hard work and dedication, no magic was needed, and the members would return to Ottawa with the gold.  While still in Toronto, and having achieved such a milestone once again, the young artists were then free to celebrate with a day at the Toronto Zoo, followed by a very inspirational performance by the Montreal Wind Ensemble.  The smiles on their faces even lasted the bus ride home.  It was truly another trip to remember for a lifetime.
