The party is over, or is it just beginning?? On 3 December – Island School launched its 50th birthday year with a fantastic community music and arts festival- The Island 5-0. This event highlighted the breadth and depth of Island School’s artistic talent in music, drama, dance and visual arts. Our current and alumni students, and staff performed on multiple stages and venues around the school providing all festival attendees with 7 hours of quality entertainment. The level of audio and visual production required equipment far beyond what we use every day at the school, and we had many stages set up in order to give each type of performance it’s spotlight. We had to secure additional equipment for the event, including lights, amplifiers, and various speakers, sound mixing boards, A/V control panels, platform stages and wiring. Would you consider helping us off set these costs this year with your Spirit Fund donations?
