The Gryphon Trio at The St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts performing Claude Watson student composers' Lisha Lo and Kaili Maimet's' pieces; Grade 9 music majors attending a TSO Dress Rehearsal at Roy Thomson Hall; grade 11/ 12 String majors doing workshops with local Middle School string students: these are three examples of the dozens of opportunities students have already had this year.
