UMS had another successful week at MusicFest. This national festival, with the best adjudicators in the country attending, is by invitation only. Our school placed very high in the regionals and were asked to come to MusicFest. Even making it to this prestigious event is a cause for celebration, but our primary and junior choirs went further than that, winning gold placements for their performances. This is the highest level of achievement (platinum is no longer awarded). Our intermediate bands also did well, with the grade 6 band and Jazz band both pulling in a silver. Our combined grades 7/8 band received a well deserved bronze. Everyone should be extremely proud of all the hard work that went into the event. Congratulations.
