Festival 500 Update(Nain Participants)

Festival 500 Sharing the Voices will be celebrated on February 18 - 21 at Happy Valley-Goose Bay.

Jens Haven Memorial School in Nain is hoping to send students to participate in the event.

We spoke to Chris Guindon the Music Teacher for Jens Haven Memorial School.

Guindon says they had auditions in the beginning of January; and the turnout of participants was outstanding, with 26 students auditioning.

He says after the auditions it was a hard decision to make, but out of the 26, 5 students have been chosen to attend the festival.

The students from grades 7, 8 and 10 are Katrina Anthony, Mary Andersen, Alicia Dicker, Steven Maggo and Kendra Pain.

The songs the students are practicing in rehearsals are “You Raise Me Up” and “Can You Hear Me”, as well as the Magma Honor Song.
