Poirier Families,

We have another update regarding the Norman Foote concerts.

As a result of low ticket sales for the Norman Foote concerts, we had to make a decision to cancel one of the concerts. We have cancelled the Monday, February 22 concert at EMCS.

We will still have the concert here at Poirier on Wednesday, February 24 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. All students from grades 1 – 5 are able to perform with Norman at this concert.

If you purchased tickets for the Wednesday concert here at Poirier, you do not need to do anything. Just come as you had originally planned.

If you purchased tickets for the Monday concert at EMCS, you can use your ticket(s) for the Wednesday performance. If you cannot come to the Wednesday concert, please return the tickets to the office for a refund.

Tickets can still be purchased for the Wednesday concert next week and if we have any left after the presales, tickets may be available at the door.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Don’t hesitate to call the office with any questions.




Norman Foote Live in Sooke!

***Updated Ticket Information:

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children not enrolled at Poirier, with partial proceeds to the school music program. Parents attending to see their child sing are welcome to bring their kindergarten students with them free of charge but will need a ticket to account for seating.
Ticket orders are due by Thursday, February 18th. We would really appreciate pre-orders as this will help us with our planning.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to see our Poirier students in concert with Juno Award-Winning musician, Norman Foote! Norman is a Vancouver-based singer/songwriter who has to travel to the Island for these appearances, so let’s support local talent and give our kids the chance to perform, onstage, with a professional musician. Music brings communities together – come and experience Norman Foote live featuring École Poirier!
