Welcome to Ballenas Secondary Music!


All those early rehearsals, the hard work, and COMMITMENT pays off again! Welcome to another year of performing music at Ballenas Secondary! The Ballenas Music program has a proud tradition of Concert Band, Jazz, and Vocal performing ensembles. We are also proud to have a comprehensive guitar program, with students studying the bass, electric, classical, acoustic guitars at every level of ability. We even offer instruction on ukulele and banjo for interested students!

In addition to a series of community and school concerts, trips and festivals have been, and continue to be an important part of the Ballenas music activities. In addition to local festivals on the Island, we have participated in MusicFest Canada in several Canadian cities, and the Canadian Rocky Mountain Music Festival in Banff. We are proud to have many plaques and awards displayed on our music room wall.

If you are a current or former Ballenas Music student, then you will have incredible memories of many trips to amazing US destinations including Hawaii, Disneyland, New Orleans, Seattle, San Francisco in 2015, and Alberta in 2016! Next year’s trip will be to …….stay tuned! Concert Band and Choir students from grade 8-12  are excited to participate and I know it will be another amazing adventure in the Ballenas Music tradition!)
