On Thursday, December 19th, we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas concert organized and led by our music teacher, Mr. Brion. We started with Patrick T. playing two piano pieces (“Super Smash” and “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”) followed by Ms. Peter’s/Ms. Mahal’s class on violins playing “Away in a Manger” and “Ode to Joy”. The grade 6 mandolin boys were on mini accordions and yukeleles playing a “Ukrainian Bell Carol” and “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings”. Ms. Russel’s and Ms. Mazinani’s grade 3 and 4 students sang “Deck the Hall” and “Good Old St. Nick” with solos and three santas. Thien H. did a lovely piano solo (Canon in D Major) followed by the grade 2 and 3 students in Ms. Callegari’s, Ms. Younger’s, and Ms. Heinrich’s classes singing a rocky rendition of “Christmas Shopping Blues” and “La Fiesta de la Posada”. The grade 1 and 2 students in Ms. Labuda’s, Ms. Johnson’s, and Ms. Han’s class sang “Making Christmas Cookies” and “Run, Run, Reindeer”. The concert ended with the Kindergarten children from Ms. Cuthbert’s, Ms. Eaket’s, and Ms. Nijjar’s/Ms. Rakhra’s class singing “Days of the Week” and “There Was a Little Baby”. All the children did very well, and we are very proud of each one of them!
