On Monday, June 1st, the Georgian Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra performed their annual year-end performance to a house of appreciative souls who were treated to the efforts of this earnest young ensemble. Under the guidance of Music Director and Conductor Richard Mascal, the youth orchestra acquitted themselves nobly, showing both their potential and their achievements thus far.
Guest vocalist Sylvie Annette Kindree accompanied the GBSYO during one memorable segment, and sang three Gershwin songs. While I never saw any tears actually being shed there were eyes being wiped at the poignance of their combined rendition of "Someone To Watch Over Me." I know this to be true as my eyes were among those needing attention.

On Saturday May 30th over 300 people gathered at St. George's Church in Owen Sound to celebrate the career of retiring Hillcrest Elementary music teacher Brad Crawford. The audience filled the pews while current and former students, including Crawford's two sons, surprised him with a tribute concert, shared their favourite stories, and thanked him for the lessons he had taught them. Teaching does not provide much instant gratification but Saturday's show was proof that good teachers make great differences.
