What a festival it was for Keisha Parrott, Emma Rogers, Raine Rogers, and our Elementry Choir!!! It was 10 days of beautiful performances and each of our performers were called back to the Highlights concerts on Tuesday and Wednesday! Random Island Academy is so proud of these students as they represented us so magnificently!
Our students pick up many first-place finishes throughout the festival but received their highest honours at the awards ceremony. Our Elementry Choir under the direction of Ms Matthews, was awarded an Adjudicator’s Discretionary Award for their wonderful performance. Raine Rogers won the ‘Best Family Award’ and an award for Piano 9 and under Group A. Emma Rogers won the ‘Anne Quinton-Avery Baroque Award’ and an award for Piano 12 and under Group A. Keisha Parrot had an outstanding festival picking up five awards: The ‘Victoria Best Memorial Award’; The ‘Canadian Composition’ Award; The ‘Songs of NL’ Award; the ‘Mills, Pittman & Twyne Folk & Traditional Music Award’; and the ‘Burin Peninsula Arts Council Award’. Keisha’s voice teacher was Ms Matthews, who accompanied her on some of her performances.
Congratulations to you all…you were outstanding!!!
