Other projects

Northern Pen - - Front page -

The French Shore Academy mu­sic class has plenty of other projects hap­pen­ing.

Af­ter stop­ping at the ceme­tery where Ru­fus Guin­chard is laid to rest, the class trav­elled to Cor­ner Brook for a con­cert with the First United Church ac­cor­dion group.

They played a lot of tra­di­tional songs, as well as songs writ­ten by their mu­sic teacher, Ryan Wilt­shire.

Their last stop to per­form, be­fore head­ing back home, was at the Bonne Bay Health Cen­tre in Nor­ris Point.

There, they played tra­di­tional mu­sic, surely fa­mil­iar to the el­derly oc­cu­pants.

“It brings back those me­mories and con­nec­tions,” said Wilt­shire.

On May 26, the class dipped their toes in the­atre and took a trip down the rabbit hole of “Alice in Won­der­land”.

At the school gym­na­sium, they per­formed a mu­si­cal adap­ta­tion of the clas­sic story, en­ti­tled “Alice in Won­der­land Jr.”

To round ev­ery­thing out the class held their an­nual Fid­dler’s Café on May 31. That event was sold out.
