The Reynolds Secondary School Bands present a live-streamed version of their 2021 Mother’s Day Concert (traditionally held in Playfair Park in Saanich, British Columbia) TODAY, May 9th from 2pm-3pm. The program features our school’s Intermediate Jazz Band, Senior Jazz Band, and Senior Concert Band. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our concert selections were pre-recorded at Reynolds on Thursday, May 6th and Friday, May 7th. Unfortunately, the Reynolds Alumni Band could not take part this year for the same reason.
My sincere thank goes to all of my students for their dedication and thoughtfulness in preparing for this concert! I am incredibly proud of these kids – most notably our Grade 12 students who have been incredible leaders throughout the school year1
A huge thank you goes to my friends and colleagues, Katy and John Gray, for being so incredibly supportive last week! Thank you to my teaching mentor and former Reynolds Band teacher, Dale Wilson, for all of his guidance over the years (and for starting the show 40 years ago) Thank you as well to Rob Philips at Saanich Municipal Hall for all of his support! This concert began 40 years ago (when Playfair Park was built) as a partnership between the Reynolds Band and the Municipality of Saanich as a way of showcasing the park to the community. If you have never been, I encourage you to check it out – it is absolutely gorgeous! We look forward to returning to Playfair Park in the future!
