Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.

BC Music Educators' Association (BCMEA) Provincial Honour Ensembles
Each spring, the BC Music Educators' Association auditions students from all over the province for a chance to perform in the BC Provincial Honour Ensembles. Rehearsals are held in the fall of the next school year and the concerts are at the BCMEA Conference in October. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn from a master educator, to play alongside the finest student musicians in the province, and to perform in an unforgettable event.

North Vancouver School District Honour Band and Orchestra
in Concert with The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Each year, select students from North Vancouver School District have the opportunity to perform in concert with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in the North Vancouver School District Honour Band and Orchestra in March. Students are selected by audition, or on their teacher's recommendation. This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn from our community's finest musicians in a performance setting. The honour ensembles alternate between elementary and secondary school students each year.
