Every year, Knight rMore, Vocal Ensemble and Jazz Band travel to STM's four "feeder schools" to perform for the elementary students. All three musical ensembles showcase their talents and the opportunities available at STM in the musical arts.
This year, Knight rMore kicked off the concert, followed by the Vocal Ensemble and the Jazz Band. At the very end, Knight rMore played "Brighter Side of Christmas," accompanied by the Vocal Ensemble. This song has been played every year at the feeder school concerts and continues to be a favourite!
The STM students who are part of the three ensembles have a real passion for music, and this passion is shared at the feeder schools. It is an important way to allow younger students to see how everyone can fit in at STM and have fun!
Students who belong to these clubs explain that being in a music ensemble at STM “…feels like [we’re] all part of a big family!”
Whether you enjoy singing, playing instruments or just want to try something new, give one of these three ensembles a try! This is the key message that the feeder school concert tries to convey. As all of the music instructors at STM like to say, “There is always a place for everyone.”
Congratulations to Knight rMore, the Jazz Band and Vocal Ensemble for their amazing performances. Thank you to everyone who participated, especially Mr. Gagnier, Mr. Santos and Ms. Gordon.
