Blackville School Choir Recommended for National Level Competition

The Blackville School Senior Girls Choir received some major recognitions at the New Brunswick Music Festival.

The choir was awarded first place, receiving the Prix Paul J. Bourret Award.

The choir was also recommended to compete at the national level at the National Music Festival, based on their tape recording that was sent to Mount Allison to be judged.

It is expected that the Girls Choir will send a tape to be judged at the national level.

This was the last year of choir for three students, Cameron Hambrook, Rayna MacVicar and Jensen Urquhart are graduating this year. It is also the last year for Choir Director and music teacher Cathy Frenette who is retiring this year.
