SKSS Music Department’s first post-Covid School Show

Posted On Friday March 10, 2023

The SKSS Music Department is super excited to hold its first post-Covid SKSS school show and is celebrating the music department's musical successes with the school population. Even though the term two students have only been playing together for four weeks, they sound amazing, and are ready to showcase their talented kiddos!

Grade 10 student, Jakob Stobbe, says, "We are going to show our peers that we put tons of effort into what we do. Our jazz band students and our teacher are dedicated to 7 am rehearsals and we aim to sound amazing! The nerves for a school show are intense...we are playing for the people we try to build relationships with. There is more room for judgement, so we want to do really well." 

Five ensembles performed for staff, students and parents on Thursday, March 2nd at 11:30 am in the school gymnasium. The show highlights the strength of SKSS music students and celebrates their musical successes.

The Concert Band 9 performed "Batman, Generations" and "Louie Louie," while the school choir sang two jazzy numbers with members of the jazz band's rhythm section including, "Send Down the Rain" and "Jazz Cantate."

The Sr. Concert Band performed, "The Simpsons" and a beautiful earthly soundscape number called, "EarthDawn." The Jazz Combo performed "Afternoon in Paris" and the SKSS Jazz Band ended the show with, "Moves Like Jaggar," "Take five," and a funk number called, "Buckjump."

Grade 11 student, Alex Corke, shares, "It's exciting to play for our peers, knowing that the majority of them are not able to hear what we are working on every day in our classes." 

Grade 11 student, Helen Percy, shares, "There's a higher judgement factor to play for your peers, so it's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time."
