Congratulations to the Lynn Valley Elementary Concert Band, and Jazz Band on a busy and successful year – it could even be described as “out of this world,” as you’ll read below!

The Concert Band achieved a gold award at the Kiwanis Concert Band Festival in Richmond, and gave a first class performance at the District Band and Strings Festival.

This year Lynn Valley had a large number of students accepted to the North Vancouver Honour Band. They had the incredible opportunity of being invited to play along with Chris Hadfield, Commander of the International Space Station, at Music Monday celebrations at Science World.

The Lynn Valley Jazz Band won the Most Inspiring Jazz Ensemble award at the Kiwanis Jazz Festival at Capilano University. One of the school’s band members also won Most Outstanding Soloist for the second year in a row at that festival.

The Jazz Band has been invited to play at the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival on Saturday June 22nd 1pm at Robson Square.  This is a free venue and open to everyone. Please come down and cheer on this incredible band!
