Jazz night for Lorna
It was late last fall that White Rock lost one of its most energetic and talented citizens, Lorna Graham. She worked as a band teacher, mainly at Earl Marriott Secondary, for what must have been twenty years. It's hard to conjure a list of just how many young people she inspired into pursuing music.
Wednesday saw a reunion of a whole bunch of retired (or not) band teachers -- men who had worked with Lorna, men who knew and respected her as a colleague and as a musician. The gig was a fundraiser, looking to drum up monies to support young musicians through a bursary that will remember Lorna's longstanding contributions.
Helluva great time.
