Kerrie-Lynn Matheson Boys delighted at winning 1st place

“We sent in recordings to the OMFA (Ontario Music Festivals Association) in the Grades 9 to 12 category for Jazz bands across Ontario,” said music Director Kerrie-Lynn Matheson Boys, “and were shocked to discover on June 3rd that we won first place with our selection of ‘Come Fly with Me’.”







Once again, the SDSS Musical Theatre class is about to present its annual musical production.  This year, the production is The Addams Family-A New Musical.  A live orchestra of former music teachers, SDSS alumni and music students will be in the ‘orchestra pit’.
