Local music student accepted into Canada’s prestigious youth band

Ask mother, Sheri Selman what she thinks of the cultural musical community in Saugeen Shores and, she will … “want to shout to the rooftops”.
The reason is her daughter, Rebecca a Gr. 11 student at Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS), has been accepted into one of the most prestigious youth bands in Canada.
‘Becca’ Selman, an accomplished percussionist, is one of the newest and youngest members of The Georgian Bay Symphony Orchestra and has now been accepted into the Canadian Band Association 2022 National Youth Orchestra of Canada.
She plays all percussion instruments, including, Timpani, Drum kit, Xylophone, Snare, Bells, Cymbals and so much more. “She has the music in her heart and has worked so extremely hard for it all,” says mother Sheri Selman.
Rebecca Selman will also be joining the Festival Winds of Summer Music Saugeen Shores summer music camp that runs from July 18th to 22nd.
On Friday May 13th there will be an in-live and streaming fundraising concert with tickets that can be purchased at http://ampd.yorku.ca/boxoffice

“What an amazing musical community we have here in Saugeen Shores,” says Sheri Selman, “and we have to thank music teacher Mrs. Boys and all Becca’s mentors.”
