The EMCS Music Department is emerging to offer an exciting array of musical experiences. Students can participate in yearlong credit granting performance ensembles such as Concert Band and Drumline, with an additional DL course choice of an Orchestra program from Westshore which is offered Tuesday evenings at EMCS. Members of the program have additional opportunities to grow and learn through small ensembles, clinics, festival participation and many varied performance situations, as well as musical tours. There is also the option to take private lessons through Harmony Project, a charitable organization in Sooke, set up to enhance the lives of young people through the study of music.

In choosing a music course as an elective at EMCS, you are joining a team where your input is valued, and the results of your hard work are shared and multiplied by the whole ensemble. Students will leave this program knowing the value of commitment, concentration and self-discipline; life skills that will help you to succeed in whatever career you pursue.

Thank you for your interest in the music program at EMCS, a wonderful future is in store for all involved and if you have any further questions please contact Lorna Bjorklund at lbjorklund@sd62.bc.ca or your counsellor.
