SCSS Music Council Executive 2019-2020
We are a student-run council, responsible for organizing events, fundraisers, and concerts for the music program at SSES.
To ensure that the SSES music program is enjoyable, exciting and welcoming to all students.
Music Council meets weekly to discuss matters of the music program and to ensure that the needs of all music department students are met. We take votes, form committees and debate issues in order to plan events such as band camps, choir camps, concerts, coffee houses, fundraisers, and the annual music department trip. Music Council is a fun way for students to further their involvement in the music program at SSES.
Interested in Music Council?
This year music council is open to everyone in the music program for those that want further opportunities to be involved throughout the year. Meetings are held weekly on Wednesday's during senior lunch in the music room (11:40 am - 12:10 pm). Juniors wanting to be involved will be able to attend meetings at alternate times, run by one of the music council executives. Music Council is a great place to connect with musically-minded peers and make a difference in SSES’s school environment. Hope to see you there!
Music Council Executive
Holding an executive position on Music Council offers unique opportunities for both inter- and intra-personal development through various council-related tasks during the school year. Traits like responsibility, initiative, confidence, and creativity are often utilized and developed while facing and working through these challenges. This year, the exec positions have been filled, but there are still many opportunities for those looking to get involved! Here's to a great year!
Bronwyn MacLeod is a grade 12 student at SSES and this is her 6th year in the music program. She plays the flute in the symphonic band, which she has played for 7 years, 1 of those years being at an elementary school. She is very passionate about music and playing the flute, and even though band rehearsal is early in the morning it is always the highlight of her day. Her goals in music for this year are to become even more involved in the music program by helping out wherever possible and to further advance her skills when playing repertoire. She is thrilled to be back on music council this year, and to plan an amazing year for the music department!
