Lomond Sound will be touring schools in central Newfoundland and on the Northern Peninsula next spring.

The group will be performing concerts and giving workshops in traditional music and dance during the tour, which will run from May 6 to June 3. 

The Ladle Cove-based organization was announced as the recipient of a $20,000 grant through ArtsNL’s school touring program on Monday. They were one of four projects that received funding through the program for this school year.

“The school touring program supports professional artists from Newfoundland and Labrador who create significant tours for kindergarten to Grade 12 students in schools, said ArtsNL executive director Reginald Winsor.

“Tours this year will lead students to explore traditional Newfoundland and Labrador culture and heritage, as well as themes of inclusion and confidence building. Students will have access to professional artistic experiences through songwriting, dance, film, ensemble musical performance, puppetry, and theatre to achieve curriculum learning outcomes while simultaneously developing an appreciation of the arts.”

The Lomand Sound school tour will visit Musgrave Harbour, Carmanville, Wesleyville, Dover, Gambo, Wing's Point, Ladle Cove, Lumsden, Centreville, Trout River, Woody Point, Rocky Harbour, Daniel's Harbour, Port Saunders, Plum Point, and Flower's Cove.
