Mrs. Foley

Hello String Orchestra members and welcome to a new year at Michael Power St. Joseph High School. 

Due to the restrictions of Covid-19 we are unable to meet afterschool.  Credit classes are still running so I am looking forward to seeing many of you in class throughout the year.  In the meantime we will aim to get a virtual group together and start recording some music.  Listen for announcements and  good luck everyone as we navigate this new way of living and learning.

This year's Grade 8 Open House was a huge success.  Performances by our Drum Line and Special Strings were outstanding and very well received by an appreciative audience.  Thank you to everyone who participated and especially those who stayed on to answer questions and continue the musical interludes in our music corridor.  Great job everyone!
