Why take music?
There are many reasons why young people should be given the opportunity to take music classes throughout their school career.
A few good reasons can be found HERE.

Seasonal Sounds 2017
Family and friends packed into the Bear Creek Auditorium to hear an excellent and varied concert of music both spiritual and festive. From a rousing performance by future Kodiaks to the quieter songs of choirs, bands and even a brass quintet, the evening passed quickly for an appreciative audience of over 200. Well done.
First Light - Sainte Marie
A sure sign that the holiday season is upon us is a trip to the First Light Festival at Sainte Marie Among The Hurons in Midland. On December 8, performances by Bear Creek's Concert Choir, Lorelei and our newly formed men's choir, Sonix, helped to entertain the many visitors who were there to shop at the craft market, make traditional Christmas ornaments or wander through the village. Complete with a fresh dusting of snow on the ground, it was once again a magical event, and one to which the choirs look forward to returning next year.
Ontario Vocal Festival
On February 28, Concert Choir, Sonix and Lorelei will be travelling to Mississauga to participate in the Ontario Vocal Festival. In addition to performing, singers will get to listen to a day full of choirs from all across the GTA, and enjoy a lunch hour performance. It's been a few years since Bear Creek was last there, and we are looking forward to going back.
At the beginning of March, Bear Creek's bands will be returning to Collingwood to participate in this Musicfest regional festival. It's a busy day, with lots of bands to hear, and the bus ride is often an adventure in itself!
