The first-ever Halloween Drive-in Movie and Concert night was a hoot.
The evening featured the film, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, as well as performances by students and teachers in the Harmony Project Drumline and Strings programs.
Hosted by Harmony Project Sooke and sponsored by the District of Sooke, the event took place at the Seaparc parking lot and was enjoyed by about 40 lucky car-loads, who “applauded” performances by honking their horns loudly.
Drumline members Aodhan Tonnesen and Chase Waldie help set up
Drumline “drummed” the cars in as they arrived. Members pictured are left to right Dmytri Taylor, Gavin MacTavish, Miller Mason, and Aodhan Tonnessen (plus not pictured, on quad drums were Chase Waldie and Evan Nagy).
HPS Executive Director, Lorna Bjorklund, welcomed the audience.
“Oh Canada” played by Strings members Louis and Philip Almahana.
Teachers in the Amiloh Trio (Hollas Longton, Liz Massi and Maria Wang) serenaded the audience. The audio fed into the FM radios in people’s cars was crystal clear.
8-year-old Hunter Givliano performed “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”.
A huge thank you to the District of Sooke and to HPS teachers Chris Rivollier, Alex Mold, Maria Wang, Hollas Longton, and Liz Massi.
“Let’s do this again!” say Drumline teachers Jack Skellington or the Pumpkin King (aka Chris Rivollier) and Lock or maybe Shock (aka Alex Mold).
