Proceeds to support local school program.
Long-time local favourites Grand Theft Bus have released a new song. Over the winter, the band recorded a series of new tracks with engineer Chris Maclean at All in the Mind Studios. This is the first recording from those sessions to surface.
It’s On Fire was released May 14, 2015 via the group’s Bandcamp page. Until May 31, the band will be donating all proceeds from the track to support Connaught Street School’s Art Stories Program ‘The Power of Music’.
Over the past few years Connaught Street School has been recognized by the community for its commitment to the early development of arts appreciation through a variety of initiatives and unique opportunities for students.
It’s On Fire is available in exchange for any size donation. Great music and a great cause. Well done everyone.

Professional Musicians & Students Of Connaught Street School Caught On Film
The Connaught Street School Family Association (CSSFA) is thrilled to announce that this year’s Art Stories program will host a sneak peak of a new documentary “The Power of Music” at the Boyce Farmers Market on Sunday May 31st from 2:00-3:30pm. The documentary is a compilation of video filmed of every Connaught Street school class working with notable professional musicians such as David Myles, Olympic Symphonium, Alan Jeffries, Kathleen Gorley-McSorley, Peter Broderick and Owen Steele.
Every student at Connaught had the opportunity to explore the expressive power of music and the creative process with at least one musician. A CSS parent-owned/operated production company, Frequent Seas Productions, filmed the children’s experiences with these musicians, and put together a video from this footage. The film crew also guided students as they captured footage of these classroom sessions from their own perspectives.
On May 31st the Connaught Street School Community will see this film for the first time. There will also be live performances, food vendors, music related crafts for kids and more.
