Bill Crothers Secondary School is an athletic based high school in the community of Unionville in Markham, Ontario. Named for the former Olympic athelete and Chair of the York Region District School Board, Bill Crothers, the school opened its doors in August 2008. We thank the students and especially their music director and conductor, Susan Baskin, for the band’s participation in today’s concert.
