Music: What a Good Feeling It Can Create!
Our KES Stage Band performed the 1983 hit song Flashdance What A Feeling at our last coffee house. This group meets and rehearses on Monday and Friday mornings and has developed a diverse collection of tunes ranging in selections from James Brown, Jerome Kern, Antônio Carlos Jobim, and Irving Berlin to name a few. Although some band members were absent due to other School commitments, the students in this performance include Grade 10 students, Victoria Dubois and Ileana Wheeler (vocals), Grade 11 students, Ella Brown (trumpet), Morgan Bryant (guitar), Max Cole (lead guitar), and Eva Redmond (cornet). Special recognition is extended to seniors Joanna Bond (vocals), Nick Cheverie (drums), Kyra Jarvis (alto sax), Miguel Villar Moreno (guitar), Che Him (Bryan) Li (piano), Ben Lohr (bass), and Piranavan Somasekaram (clarinet).

Did you know that many of our activities are called "Co-Curricular"? We don't call them "Extra-Curricular" because we don't think that Art, Music, Athletics, and Student Leadership are extras! Your child deserves a well-rounded education with all the extras. We'd love to tell you more about it: Plan Your Visit here.
KES inspires academic, athletic and artistic excellence with a commitment to the traditional community ideals of gentleness and learning, dignity and respect, so that students may discover and cultivate their unique potential, prepare for post-secondary education and develop a life-long enthusiasm for the spiritual and intellectual growth necessary to flourish in the contemporary world.
