TAB's Wind Ensemble Wins Gold at Carnegie Hall!!! Last Tuesday evening, the musicians who form our Thomas A. Blakelock Wind Ensemble returned from New York City where they participated in an Invitational Concert Band Festival held on the stage of Carnegie Hall, ranked one of top ten concert halls in the world. Our remarkable musician’s performances were both captivating and inspiring.  They represented our School and our Country with the utmost passion and resolve and earned the ensemble a Gold Medal. We are so very proud of these young musicians!! Their conductor, Mr. Vincent could not be more proud! It is his honour to make music with this amazing band!!  Thank you to the the staff, Mrs. Abbott and Mr. Coakwell, and parents, especially Mme. Richard for documenting the trip and for their support!
