Jazz Night: A Collaborative Success!

On Tuesday, March 26th, 2019, the ES Orff Ensemble performed a song with the HS Jazz Band at the annual Jazz Night concert. Tom Myers, the HS band director, arranged a jazz band version of a tune that the ES Orff Ensemble had learned – “Green Sally Up”. The ES and HS musicians took turns playing the tune, traded improvised solos, and then performed the tune together. Collaboration of this kind requires planning, flexibility, and open-mindedness, as well as courage and confidence on the part of our youngest musicians. The Orff Ensemble performed with great musicality, and impressed the audience with their vocal solos, improvised solos, and ensemble skills. Way to go ISB musicians! 

Below, you can find photos and video of the performance. Enjoy!

ES Musical: “The Cat and The Rat: A Caribbean Folk Tale”

On February 12th and 13th, 142 Grade 5 students will head to the stage to enact a dramatization of the Caribbean Folk Tale, “The Cat and The Rat!” This fun, tropical show is not to be missed! Students have contributed to editing the script, choreography and sound as well as working on the costume design, stage make-up and set design!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL – There will be live music, that has been produced by our Grade 5 students who have carefully studied traditional Caribbean dance and Calypso music for a fully authentic and original production. There will be an interactive student exhibition in the Chevron Theatre relating to the French post-impressionist painter Henri Rousseau.

Do not miss this phenomenal production, which will prove to be an audio visual sensation!
