Bessborough Drive Elementary and Middle School
2011 Choral Project
Our grade 5 students have had the privilege of working with Brainerd Blyden-Taylor, an internationally renowned musical director, clinician and vocal coach. He is founder and director of the Nathaniel Dett Choral. Brainerd Blyden-Taylor has been involved in choral projects in TDSB for many years.
Mr. Blyden-Taylor will work on vocal music with our teachers and those from 13 other schools at four teacher workshops over the four spring months and he will model the teaching of the music with the students at five mass rehearsals. Students will be bussed to these rehearsals. He will also visit individual schools twice for additional rehearsals. All parents will be invited to the Evening Concert on March 29th, at 7:00 pm at East York Collegiate.
