Grade seven band students from Flin Flon School Division were in The Pas last week. Band Instructor Anna Harrison says they were part of The Pas Music and Fine Arts Festival. She says they played at Margaret Barbour Collegiate for an adjudicator and her name is Patsy Andrews-Verte from the Winnipeg area and she was adjudicating all of the instrumental events at the Festival and she did a clinic with them for about 45 minutes just helping them get better. She says it was a really great experience and the kids played very very well.
Harrison adds this is a new experience for her band students with the grade eight students attending the Festival for the first time last year.
