A joint concert between the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School (PSO) band and the 100 Mile House Community Band saw a number of great performances and raised funds for local health care on June 9.

The audience at the local high school was treated to band, choir and individual student performances, including a wonderful rendition of the Jason Mraz hit, Lucky, performed by Mikayla Crandell and Rick Donnett.

The concert raised close to $200 for the South Cariboo Health Foundation.

At the end of the concert, PSO music teacher Vanessa Toews “passed the baton” to 100 Mile Elementary School music teacher Jasmine Kreschuk, who will be teaching at PSO next year.

Mark Thiessen, School District 27 superintendent, highlighted the importance of music programs in the school district and the collaboration of all its music teachers.
