The Kamloops Thompson Honour Choir Perform the CAKE Musical at the Paramount

Posted On Friday December 09, 2022

The Kamloops Thompson Honour Choir performed their winter concert on Sunday, December 4, 2022 at the Paramount Theater.

The choir is directed by Jennica Alpaugh, managed by Cyndy Olsen, accompanied by Lori Jane Froese and Kerry Tarwnosky collaboratively rehearsed with students in grades 3-7 from across the district. They prepared a musical, CAKE - The Christmas Acts of Kindness Experiment Musical. The musical was about connecting with the community and sharing gifts and talents to show kindness to everyone throughout the holiday season.

Students engaged in choral singing, movement, and drama to share their message of kindness and their love of singing with the audience. The junior choir consisted of students in grades three and four, and senior choir members are in grades five through seven. Students come together from across the district, and they rehearse once a week.

The Kamloops Thompson Honour Choir was formed over 40 years ago by Marion Owens to promote connection and a love of singing. Students are auditioned in the spring and connect to the community through various concerts and outreach projects throughout the year.

Janet McCloy, District Coordinator of Arts Education, shared, "Having the children's choir together again and performing live after almost three years away is magical. Hearing their songs inspires kindness and reminds us of the power of music to convey meaningful messages".
