IB SL Group Go Their Own Way on a Classic and a New Recital Date

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 13, 2020 9:36:18 AM

large_news1309892_1327651Last week I featured Hidemi Sato preparing a piano piece for the upcoming spring recital of my IB musicians. Please be advised of a change in the recital date: It will now be held on Monday, March 2nd, at 7:30pm. This change is due to a conflict with a public debate of our pending new amalgamated West Hants councillors taking place in the Fountain Performing Arts Theatre on the original date I gave last week.
 
Here is a glimpse of some of Hidemi’s classmates also getting ready for their portion of the March 2nd recitals. Katie Goddard (vocals) and Max Cole (guitar) both tested out with SL Solo Performance in Grade 11 with marks of 5 & 6 respectively. They continue to study music in Grade 12 this year and are playing along side Grade 11 students Grace Gallant (Bass) and Jem Logan (drums) to complement a group. They are doing their best to arrange a varied collection of musical genres to prove their musical diversity when their recorded recital is uploaded to the IB examiner immediately following the March break. They are working on a bossa nova piece, a cool jazz number, a pop ballad, and Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit, Go Your Own Way, plus others; it's a work in progress. This rehearsal video, taken yesterday, is a solid demonstration of talent and potential. Enjoy.
