It's that time of the year again where our fantastically talented music students showcase their hard work in the form of a face-melting, jaw-dropping Spring Concert performance. The date for this event is Thursday, May 4th, and the show will begin at 7:00 p.m.
The young musicians are most eager for the opportunity to melt and drop their teachers' faces and jaws, respectively, so please consider clearing your calendar and attending this spectacle.
You will see and hear the talents of NEON (acappella jazz vocal ensemble), CKSS Concert Choir, Jazz Band, CKSS Concert Band, Drumline, and the CKSS music classes to name a few. All groups continue to improve exponentially, and if you've never had the pleasure of hearing any of them, prepare to be impressed!
This event is fun for the whole family: there will be music to please all (some movie favourites, and Pentatonix arrangements perhaps). Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for students.
Come on out to watching our very own CK Concert Choir and NEON perform at Halton Showcase in front of an audience of over 2000 people! Please see below for details; hope to see you there!
Date: Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 @ 7:30p.m.
Tickets: $15 each (purchase at the door)
Location: Hamilton Place (FirstOntario Concert Hall)
Hundreds of students will perform in the Grand Hall of Hamilton Place before an audience of 2,000 parents, friends and music supporters at the Halton Music Showcase. The annual event is a 20-year tradition for elementary and secondary students with the Halton public board.
Approximately 1,500 students from Grades 4-12 began rehearsals in February in preparation for the spring concert. Performances include stage bands, concert bands, jazz groups and choirs. A highlight of the evening will be the finale featuring a performance by a 600-member student choir.
"Showcase is a celebration of excellence in music programs in the Halton District School Board," said Jane Wamsley, elementary arts consultant for the Halton board. "It provides an opportunity for our students to perform in a venue with a professional stage, lighting and acoustics ... for many students this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Please refer to the attached PDF, and follow the indicated flow, if you will be driving onto the school property. Construction starts on February 27th!
Change your life. Change the lives of others. Come with us to India in 2018!
CKSS is going to India next March Break! This is going to be the trip of a lifetime! We will be experiencing sunset at the Taj Mahal, hiking in the Himalayas, visiting the Gandhi Memorial and shopping in Janpath market. Students will be touring Old and New Delhi, taking Yoga & Mediation classes, and visiting the Dalai Lama's Temple and Tea Gardens. The most important part of this trip however, is the service learning component. On this trip students will be earning forty community service hours working with a non-profit organization and alongside community members on a meaningful community development project in Dharamsala, the home of the Dalai Lama.
We would love to see you at our parent/student information meeting on Thursday, February 16th at 7pm in room 224. Get in touch with CKSS Educator Tania McPhee at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to confirm your attendance at the meeting!
