Following annual tradition, various music groups and extracurriculars at MD took to the road on December 3rd to continue this year’s Feeder School Tour. The Senior Concert Band, Foster’s Funk Band, and the A Capella group performed and promoted MD’s music program to elementary schools whose students are to attend MD in the coming years.
After Day 1 at Sam Sherratt and Brookville, Day 2 kicked off at W.I. Dick Middle School, where the beloved student rock band “The Hinatsu Experience” blew everyone away with strong vocals and radical guitar solos.
From there, MD visited Martin Street Public School, where students loved the Senior Concert Band’s renditions of Imagine Dragons’ “Believer” and Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still”. The band also put on an epic cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child o’ Mine”, earning a standing ovation from some enthusiastic Grade 8s.
Escarpment View Public School was the last stop—and MD worked hard to make it the best performance of the day. Their hard work definitely showed, and EVP students were amazed by the Jazz Band’s performance of Michael Jackson’s “Rock With You” and Foster’s Funk Band’s upbeat cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie”, which included an impressive ending by vocalist Soham Sant.
All in all, it was another successful day of music-making by groups of talented and dedicated MD students. Way to go, guys!
Stay tuned to read about the final day of this year’s Feeder School Tour, where the bands will visit Anne J. MacArthur, Boyne, and P.L. Robertson Public Schools.
