We hope you are all enjoying the holidays and staying safe.

Thank you to the fifty two singers, covering Canada (east to west), USA, Europe and Australia, who participated in the Virtual Alumni Choir project.
Grads from 1990 all the way up to future grads 2023 were on this recording. Mrs Roberts was so pleased and thrilled to re-connect with so many of you.  If it was not for this pandemic this project may not have happened. Truly amazing!

Special thanks to Danny Choi (Grad 2016) recording engineer for all his work on this project.
