CCI Music Dept. Communication Updates
2017/2018 School Year At A Glance
Welcome to Collingwood Collegiate Institute Music, one of the largest and most diverse music programs in the province of Ontario, offering a wide variety of
courses and co-curricular groups. Whether you're a student who is picking up an instrument for the first time in grade nine, or a
student with a wealth of previous experience, we have classes specifically designed just for you! For those who would like to sing, we offer vocal music. And
for those interested in the computers, synthesisers and music, we offer a state of the art lab and series of courses dedicated to this advanced blend of
music and technology.
We're very proud of our students and the dedication they have to a wide range of co-curricular groups. We have 3 full concert bands
rehearsing at the beginning, intermediate and senior level. For those who are interested in jazz music, we currently have three jazz ensembles.
Our very own full-sized marching band is over 100 strong and going into its thirteenth year, and the group looks and sounds great! This year
the Marching Band will participate in the following Santa Claus Parades: Niagara Falls & Collingwood on Nov.18th, Markham & Fenelon Falls on Nov.25th, and Weston & Brantford on Nov.26th.
From February 27, 2018 to March 2, 2018 we will host close to 3000 people in bands from across Southern Ontario, for the MusicFest
Canada Georgian Bay Regional Band Festival.
C.C.I. Music. It's a very busy place full of strong and dedicated students who are a great credit to both their school and community! To each and every one
of these students (and of course their very proud parents!), congratulations for all your hard work and dedication to help make this one of the strongest music
programs we could ever hope for!
