The Journey middle school Grade 6, 7, 8 string and band students, JMS Exploratory music students, Edward Milne Community School Grade 9 band students, Ecole Poirier elementary Ukulele Ensemble along with many volunteers played to a packed audience in Monday nights Christmas fundraiser concert. Sue-Lin Tarnowski, parent of a Grade 8 strings student and coordinator of the concert’s refreshment sales, said the evening was a great success. The JMS students entertained the audience with a medley of seasonal carols and popular movie theme songs including James Bond and Star Wars. A highlight of the evening for one audience member was the performance by the JMS Exploratory Music students of John Lennon’s Imagine. Joining in the evening’s entertainment were Tom Southwood, John Bidner and members of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra. Martha Moore, long time Sooke resident and volunteer, was crowned “Queen of 50/50” to show appreciation for all the volunteer work she does for the Sooke community and it’s young people.

The concert was a fundraiser to help the band students attend Musicfest Canada in Richmond in May 2014.
