Harmony Project Sooke (HPS) will hold its first AGM on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 7:30pm at Journey Middle School Band Room.
All are welcome to attend. Members in good standing will be able to vote on motions and for officers. We are especially seeking nominations for Secretary.
Memberships may be obtained at the meeting. A basic annual membership fee is $20. Additional donations at various levels are, of course, always much appreciated.
In other news, spring has continued busy for the HPS students and their teachers. In April, HPS Drumline under Dr, Jack Edwards hosted the Belmont Drumline class in a fun and productive Drum Clinic sponsored by Tom Lee Music. In May, the HPS Drumline marched in the Victoria Day Parade in Victoria. Drumline looks so professional with their new drums purchased with a generous grant from MusiCounts and TD Bank.
The Beginning Strings Class led by Anne McDougall performed at the SeaParc Family Arts Fair and the Rotary Auction in April. They will perform at the Sooke Phil’s Secret Garden Tour and with the SD62 Strings at a Journey concert in June. The students are so proud of and enjoying their new larger string instruments, courtesy of a Community Grant from the District of Sooke.

- June 4 – Sooke Secret Garden Tour (HPS concession 11-2 at Sun River Sales Office on Philips Rd; Strings will perform at Sun River Park at 1pm)
- June 14 – HPS AGM 7:30pm at Journey Middle School Band Room
