Corpus Christi Students Sing the Blues

June 2, 2004 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board in conjunction with the Ottawa Bluesfest organization scheduled a number of presentations in the board’s family of schools during the last week of May. The Blues in the Schools program offers a unique and inspirational opportunity for students of all ages to draw on the energy and experience of award-winning blues artists such as T J Wheeler through workshops and hands on instructional techniques.


The Blues in the Schools program also teaches blues history, and through this history students learn about the injustice of racial intolerance. One of the goals of the program is to promote the use of blues music in other areas of education including art, history and creative writing. T J Wheeler believes that, ”You can wipe out racism and bullying through education and activism. He sees blues as a music of hope and as a means of developing positive social change.”
