Students performed a variety of pieces during our Fall Choir Concert. The Concert Choir performed “Sleepy Song” by Sherryl Sewepagaham, “Come Follow Me” by John Hilton, ‘Oh, How Lovely” by Anonymous, and “I’m Goin’ Up a Yonder” by Walter Hawkins. The Chamber Choir performed “Just Give Me a Reason” by Alecia Moore (Pink) and featured a solo by Emilie (Grade 12). The evening concluded with a fantastic performance by the Concert Choir singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.
During the Fall Band Concert, Grade 7-12 Band students performed a selection of pieces that have helped band members grow as musicians and become more self-confident performers on stage. The Grade 8 band started the evening with a performance of ‘Ten Masters in Two Minutes’ and ‘City of Stars’ from La La Land, which was followed by a festive show by the Grade 7 Band. The Grade 9 Band played both ‘Final Countdown’ and ‘The Phantom of the Opera Medley’ while the Senior Band conducted a riveting performance of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean Medley’ and “Midway March’. The evening concluded with a performance of ‘Superstition’ by Stevie Wonder, performed by our Jazz Band.
A big thank you to our Choir Director, Benila Ninan, and Band Director, Jacqueline Mirtic, for putting together two wonderful evenings of music as well as Music Teachers Ellie Jung and Jenna Baumgartner who led our Grade 7 Band.
