Spring Concert is on June 1st at 6:30 in the atrium of Byrne Creek Community School. 

Entrance is by donation, great music, music awards and a raffle draw for a guitar donated by Neil Douglas Guitar Shop.

Students will attend the entire show (arrive by 6 pm) and support all the students in the music department, I am excited to hear the talented students of Byrne perform the final concert of this school year, and to watch the grade 12's perform for the last time as students at Byrne Creek.
