By Matthew McCully – Now in its ninth year, the Eastern Townships School Board United in Music festival will take place this Monday in the Massey-Vanier High School auditorium. The theme for this year’s show will be Canadian music. According to Tracey Rivette, Music Specialist at Sherbrooke Elementary and one of the organizers of the annual event, the show will start with O Canada. Ensembles from 12 different ETSB schools will then take the stage to perform a variety of Canadian Classics including Steppenwolf’s Born to be Wild and Big Yellow Taxi by Joni Mitchell. As per tradition, the participants from the different schools, amounting to roughly 380 students, will then gather on stage for two group numbers. This year they will end the show with Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams and Ordinary Day by Great Big Sea. See full story in the Friday, April 12 edition of The Record.
