Grade 3 and 4 African Drumming Workshop

Grades 3 and 4 participated in a high-energy African drumming workshop with visiting musician Fana Soro. Fana is an internationally-acclaimed musician from the Ivory Coast. He taught the girls the “djembe”, West Africa’s most popular drum.

Part of the French program is to learn about French-speaking countries around the world. This workshop allowed the girls to use French to communicate with someone from another country while learning how to play the “djembe”. Fana also shared his call and response songs in his mother tongue of Senoufo.

It was fun interacting with Fana in French, and to laugh with him while discovering his culture. Merci Fana!

Senior Fall Music Concert

On November 26, 2019, Chorista, Ragazza, the Grade 7 Choir, and our Grade 8-12 bands had a chance to showcase their learning at our annual fall music concert. These music students put on a fantastic show! There was an eclectic mix of pieces, both traditional and contemporary. 

This special night would not have been possible with the tireless effort and dedication of Ms. Haylett, Ms. Ninan, and our talented students.

Watch the performances below. Enjoy!
