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.
