Artistic Directors: Christopher Haas and Greg Quan

On behalf of our Artistic Directors, Mr. Haas, Mr. Quan, and the entire Magee Music Program, we would like to thank you for continuing to support your children in their musical endeavors and for allowing us to help shape their lives.

Donations for this concert contribute directly to the Ryerson Church Scholarship, a fund that last year raised over $1000.00 for 4 eligible grade 12 students.  In 2011, our senior students had an incredible experience as they travelled to Germany, Austria, Italy and Hungary. In March 2013, we returned to Europe and had an amazing journey through Spain with wonderful musical and cultural exchanges.  In 2015 we go to the British Isles and offer our gift of music to England and Scotland! We are grateful for your support this year through fundraisers such as purchasing Magee Music CD’s, the QSP Magazine Subscriptions, Poinsettia sales, Chocolate sales, and the Market Fair.  We also graciously accept any donations (tax deductible) made out to the Magee Music Society.

Once again, thank you for attending the Magee Fall Concert.
