On Thursday December 4th, 2014, the Music Council put on the second annual Winter Concert. The talented musicians of Craig Kielburger Secondary School joined together under their respective organizations and put on a wonderful night of music that celebrated the winter season. The concert showed off the incredible dedication of C.K.’s music students under the direction of Ms. Chow and Mr. Schouten.
The night began with a performance by the C.K.S.S. drum line. Their performance was fantastic and got the night off to a great start. Things got better and better as there were performances by the grade nine instrumental class, the vocal/musical theatre class, the choir and NEON, a few individual and small group performances, and finally the C.K.S.S. concert band. It truly was a spectacular concert that united the many branches of the music program for a wonderful evening. A shortened repeat of the concert was held as a buyout on Wednesday December 10th and was equally successful.
This is the first year that Craig Kielburger Secondary School has had a Music Council. The Music Council is a democratic body which represents the interests of music at C.K.S.S. The President of this, Josh Sinclair, believed that the concert was a great success and really demonstrated the talents of our school’s students. The elected and appointed members of the Music Council put in a lot of work, supervised by Ms. Chow and Mr. Schouten, to ensure that the concert went off without a hitch.
This concert also served as a time to contribute to those less fortunate. The Music Council asked for attendees to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to charity. This was an idea proposed by the Music Council to support our community during this season.
There will be another concert in the spring to show off again the talents of C.K. music students. If you missed the winter concert, then come out in the spring for another fun filled night!
