Currently directly serving more than 160 secondary students and over 200 elementary musicians, the DW Poppy Music Department is pleased to offer 5 concert bands, 2 jazz bands, 2 choirs, 1 jazz choir, and pit orchestra for musical theatre. By teaching band at many of the surrounding elementary schools as well, we are able to encourage students from as young as grade 5 to explore music. Students perform many times through out the year both at the the school, the community, and on tours from UBC, Whistler and SunPeaks to New York, Disneyland and beyond.

Attendance – or – “80 percent of life is showing up.”
