BCCA 2021 Christmas Concert

Dear Parents,

Our most awaited BCCA Christmas Concert at the Riverside Church is happening very soon! Our Music Teachers and students are all working very hard to make this year’s “THE REASON FOR CHRISTMAS DAY” –  BCCA Christmas Concert a memorable one!

Some important things to consider for our upcoming Christmas Concert:

SAFETY FIRST 

Your health is our priority.  This event has a reduced capacity and is organized with everyone’s safety in mind.  The guidelines set by the Provincial Health Authorities for schools and our standard COVID-19 Safety Protocols will be in place. The wearing of a face mask or covering is required.  It is recommended for all those attending the concert to complete a self-administered health check prior to their arrival at the church.  Anyone with flu-like or Covid symptoms must stay home and follow up with a health care provider.  Thank you for your cooperation.
