Laura Secord Secondary School
May 6th, 3:30pm
Laura Secord Secondary School, in St. Catharines Ontario, has long been known for its unique ability to offer students the chance to excel in academics, athletics as well as the arts. The music department promotes student talent and fosters extra-curricular involvement with the production of professional calibre musicals, choirs, orchestras and bands. Membership in Laura Secord’s 100-voice concert choir is open to all students and therefore is a wonderful mix of athletes, artists, and instrumentalists joining together in song. This award-winning choir has a busy roster every year with many invitations to perform and compete outside of the school. Their annual music trip has taken them around North America, London England, Paris France, and this year they perform in Rome and Venice. They have been fortunate to work with many professional musicians including the Niagara Symphony, Canada’s Robert Pilon (Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables), and legendary choral conductor and composer John Rutter.

liturgical music, and some of the earliest known operas.
