Lo-Ellen Park Sec­ondary School is re­ceiv­ing a fourth round of fund­ing from the Joan Man­tle Mu­sic Trust in the cur­rent school year.

“We are de­lighted to show­case our stu­dent tal­ent in sup­port of such a wor­thy ini­tia­tive,” Pamela Potvin, prin­ci­pal of Lo-Ellen Park Sec­ondary School, said in a re­lease. “We in­vite the com­mu­nity to join us as we cel­e­brate the hol­i­day sea­son.

“We also wel­come this op­por­tu­nity to ex­press our grat­i­tude for the new in­stru­ments we have been able to pur­chase, thanks to gen­er­ous do­na­tions to the Joan Man­tle Mu­sic Trust.”

Lo-Ellen Park Sec­ondary School is lo­cated at 275 Loach’s Road in Sud­bury.

Tea Party at Car­suo Club March 26

The Tea Party — ar­guably Wind­sor’s most suc­cess­ful rock band to date — will be re­turn­ing to the road in the new year.

The vet­eran power trio have an­nounced 35 tour dates through­out the spring of 2019 that will take them from coast to coast across Canada and also to Seat­tle, San Fran­cisco, and Los An­ge­les.

“We couldn’t be more ex­cited to be back play­ing these lo­ca­tions again,” the band tweeted. “2019 is look­ing to be a pretty amaz­ing year.”

One of the stops will be at The Caruso Club in Sud­bury on March 26.

The tour is named af­ter the band’s new sin­gle, Black River — their first re­lease in four years.

Front­man and gui­tarist Jeff Martin said in a re­lease that he’s look­ing for­ward to “be­ing back on­stage with my soul broth­ers.”

“There’s noth­ing that com­pares to the rush I get when the Tea Party is fir­ing on all cylin­ders.”

Martin de­scribed Black River as “a fine ad­di­tion to all the mu­si­cal mo­ments we have in our arse­nal,” and an­tic­i­pated the song’s “me­ta­mor­pho­sis as the tour plays out.”

The band is also play­ing three shows in Toronto and Kitch­ener be­fore the end of the year.

Com­prised of Martin, bassist Stu­art Chat­wood, and drum­mer Jeff Burrows, The Tea Party formed and rose to promi­nence in the 1990s, sell­ing more than 1.8 mil­lion records world­wide. The band now has seven stu­dio al­bums to their credit.

Tick­ets for all con­certs avail­able now. Visit www.tea­party.com to or­der on­line.
