Michelle Reed is the music director for the A L Fortune High School in Enderby BC. After scouring the world for a drumline for our 2019 Tattoo, lo and behold we found one in a small town 30 minutes north of Vernon. Ms Reed had just guided the A L Fortune High School Drumline to the British Columbia High School Drumline Championships! And the surprises continued as the Drumline more than held their own with the Drumlines from the Calgary Round-Up Band and the British Brentwood Imperial Youth Band.

Four of us with the Tattoo Organizing Committee were at the A L Fortune High School last Wednesday to see Ms. Reed’s production of Schrek, The Musical. Great job by everyone and backstage after the show, Ms. Reed assured us the Drumline was practicing and would be in our 2020 show.
