Welcome to the Magee Music Community!

Hello Magee Music Community!

Hello and welcome to 2023!

We are so excited for what this new year will bring and have many wonderful things planned that will tantalize the senses and create memories that will last a lifetime!

The first of this will be the return of our fabulous Magee Market Fair! We haven’t been able to have a proper Market fair since 2020 and we can’t be more excited to welcome people back to what is one of the most exciting community events of the year! This year’s Market Fair is set to be absolutely incredible with games, music, entertainment, a fabulous silent auction, a wide variety of food and drink items, and many wonderful merchants to ignite imaginations everywhere! This fantastic event will take place on Friday February 10th from 5:30-8:30 pm and we can’t wait to welcome you to our event again! Admission is by donation, and we hope to see you all there!

Later in February we will have a retreat for the Chamber Choir while we get ready for our incredible tour to Montreal and Ottawa in Spring Break! But before that, Magee will host one of the most amazing events of the year as we will host the world famous a cappella group, The Real Group, from Sweden! They will be giving two concerts at Magee March 2 & 3 at 7pm. Tickets are on sale now – click HERE for tickets to these fabulous shows! Only $40 for adults and $35 for students! A fabulous opportunity to see one of the premier a cappella acts in the world today! With opening acts: on Thursday, Mountain Secondary Chamber Choir and the Spirit Alive Chorale along with the Quayside Voices; and on Friday, Lord Byng and Magee Chamber Choirs also with the Quayside Voices! Sure to be an amazing musical experience for everyone!

Then the following day, March 4th, Magee will host 12 schools in an incredible Real Group Choral Festival! Sure to be an amazing event for everyone involved!

Then the Chamber Choir, Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, and Sr Jazz band leave on tour for Montreal and Ottawa March 17-24 to experience that part of Canada in a unique and wonderful way, through song! This will surely be an experience for everyone going that will create amazing memories for years to come.

April comes and we will have our always entertaining Choir and Orchestra Concert on Wednesday April 12th in our auditorium – this event will involve all our choirs: Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Evolution Choir, Seraphim Treble Choir, Troubadour Men’s Ensemble, and In Groove Vocal Jazz, as well as our String Orchestra and our Symphony Orchestra as well as our Elementary String program! Start time will be 6:30pm at Magee! We Look forward to seeing you there!

Then on Friday April 14th, we will be welcoming Roubadoux High School Choir from California and will be performing a concert with them at Pacific Spirit United Church at 7pm. Come and enjoy this wonderful concert of a meeting of two countries in singing.

Our next Shredding Fundraiser will take place on Saturday May 6th from 10am-2pm in our Magee Parking Lot. This popular community event is always a hit, so bring all your tax papers and get things professionally shredded before your eyes – and all by donation – suggested minimum donation, $5 per bag and $10 per box! All proceeds will go to our Music Department to help students!

We look forward to seeing you at one or all of our events!
