Music at Cariboo Adventist Academy

For the 2020-21 school year, CAA will have a senior band for high school students, and a beginning band program for elementary band students.  Auditions for senior band will be held during the first week of school.

A choir program will also be started if there is sufficient student interest.

Coronavirus Update

For the 2020-21 School Year, we will be holding regular band classes in accordance with BC Ministry of Education guidelines.  All government safety requirements with regards to Covid-19 will be observed in our band classroom.

Parents or children who do not feel comfortable participating in a group music ensemble because of the coronavirus are encouraged to email the teacher, and we will try to work out an alternative arrangement to ensure that your children are able to get their music education this school year.

Fundraising Projects

The CAA Music Program is currently raising funds in order to purchase a number of percussion instruments for the band, including a set of Timpani, Bells, Xylophone, Marimba, and Chimes.  Expected costs are above $10,000.  If you can help with a donation, or if you would like to help raise funds, please contact the director at apardy@caa-bc.ca; or, talk to our school accountant.
