"A Tribute to Phil"

 Phil Mattson is an award winning educator, arranger, pianist, and conductor. He is kind, considerate and extraordinarily humble. Over his 40 year career, he has enriched the lives of tens of thousands of music students through his dedication to quality and integrity in music performance and education. Phil has written over 150 vocal arrangements, many of which have become staples in the world of choral music and vocal jazz. His works have been performed and recorded by The Manhattan Transfer, The Real Group, The Four Freshman, thousands of high school, college and professional choirs as well as his own Grammy Award vocal group, The PM Singers. He recentrly received a lifetime achievement award from the Jazz Education Network (JEN) affirming his status as a legendary figure in choral music. 

Phill Mattson's second love is Harley Davidson. He has owned or restored close to 25 motorcycles over the last 50 years. His idea of the perfect two week vacation is to ride in one direction for seven days, turn around and ride back for seven days. he cites that his best thinking is done on the bike and many choral arrangements have come to him "complete" whilst on a long ride. "There is something about the machine's throaty growl and the wind in my face that wakes my muse and opens a floodgate of creativity."

It is ironic that Phil has ridden all over the world, across Europe, through Australia, from the wilds of Alaska to the mountains of Peru and never had an accident but last September he was just blocks from his home in Minneapolis when he was struck from behind by a distracted driver. He did not suffer any brain injury yet he will require full time care to manage his daily needs not be able to live on his own as the accident left him paralyzed from the waist down.

The U.S. medical insurance being what it is, Phil's insurance dollars soon evapourted. In order to assist, his loyal students and friends launched a "Go Fund Me" campaign.

We do this concert at Campbell in order to honour one of the most important contributors, musicians, arrangers, philosophers and teachers of the modern choral music era to both acknowledge his gifts to students and audiences everywhere and also to fund raise for the Go Fund Me campaign.

Thank you for your kindness in supporting both our concert and our campaign. 100% of the funds donated this evening will go directly to the GFM campaign to support Phil in his time of need.

Thank you!

Parent Portal Attendance

Parents, please be advised that the Parent Portal program was initially set up to show student attendance for each quarter, from September to November mid-term; and then November to January.  As a result of this initial software setting,  Parent Portal may not have shown student absences for the entire semester.


We have changed the software to now show attendance for the entire semester in order to avoid any potential confusion. The final assessment incentive will continue to be applied based on the attendance for the entire semester.


As always, parents are asked to correct any errors in attendance within five days of their appearance on Parent Portal. We apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused you and we hope to continue to work with you to ensure all students have great attendance records.
