Highlights from Senior Ensemble Night

Our Senior students put on two outstanding shows for our annual year-end music concerts. The Junior ensembles performed on Tuesday, May 23rd, and our Senior ensembles had a chance to showcase on the evening of Wednesday, May 24th.

Senior Ensemble Night featured Ragazza, Chorista, the String Club, Jazz Band, and the Senior Concert Band. The co-ed choir, with students from Vancouver College, also performed. It was a treat to hear the tenors and basses mixed with our girls’ voices. It was an emotional evening for our graduating students as it was their last time performing together. The graduating girls came together for the finale to perform “For Good”, a fitting tribute to the lifelong friendships they have made.

Congratulations and a big thank you to Music Heads Jalisa, Fiona, Elizabeth, and Lucie, and to Music Directors Mr. Gueulette and Ms. Christiansen, for putting on two fabulous evenings of music!

The Power of Our Voices: LFA & YHS Perform Together

On Wednesday, February 15, the York House School Music Department arranged for a truly collaborative music education opportunity featuring the YHS Choirs: Chorista and Ragazza, and the Little Flower Academy Concert Choir.

A first for the two schools, on the morning of the concert, both school choirs participated in vocal workshops at York House School with renowned vocalist, adjudicator and educator, Dinah Helgeson. By the afternoon, both choirs came together to perform a delightful 30-minute concert.

We are truly thankful to have had Dinah Helgeson spend such invaluable time with the girls. Thank you to Head of Music, David Gueulette and Music Teacher, Heather Christiansen for making it all happen!
