In early October, the Concert Choir and Musical Theatre students did a working retreat at Fort Steele where both groups rehearsed, Choir performed, and Musical Theatre students previewed their audition monologues for this year's musical.

Later that month, Dr. Thomas Staples, professor emeritus and head of bands (retired) at the University of Lethbridge came out to Selkirk to work with the Junior Concert Band and Senior Concert Band for a two-day intensive workshop.

The Junior Concert Band, Senior Concert Band, and Jazz Band all went to the Vic Lewis Band Festival in Canmore, Alberta this month for three days of performances, adjudications, and clinics.

This week auditions wrapped up for Selkirk's school musical. This year's musical, Be More Chill, will run at McKim Theatre from May 3-6 2023.

Selkirk's annual Winter Concert will take place at McKim Theatre on December 14 at 7pm. Admission is by donation to the music program.
