Kahukura Performing Arts Celebration

CSKI Jazz Band and Pasifika Group performed in the recent Kahukura Performing Arts Celebration. This event was held outdoors at Te Ara Koropiko West Spreydon School and included performances from seven schools from the Kahukura Cluster.  Many friends and whānau enjoyed the lively atmosphere and a picnic while they watched the array of different acts. Our Jazz Band played two groovy numbers, including improvised solos, and the Pasifika group looked and sounded stunning in their bright uniforms with their rhythmic and tuneful sounds. A small select group of our students also sang and accompanied the final two massed songs. The audience was so wowed by their music that they mostly forgot to join in! It was an excellent evening showcasing the arts and culture in our schools. 

Music Camp

The CSKI Jazz Band and Orchestra recently headed away to Cracroft Guiding Centre for an overnight Music Camp. Two days of rehearsals, sectionals, percussion rhythms, a music quiz, delicious pizza and a music movie, resulted in an amazing concert for whānau where students could show off their six new songs. Many thanks to the itinerant music teachers who helped with sectionals, camp mum Kate Walters and conductor Sarah Hickman for a rewarding musical experience. 

Christchurch Schools' Music Festival

Congratulations to CSKI students who have recently represented our school in the representative groups at the Christchurch Schools' Music Festival. These groups are auditioned for and hotly contested by students from across Canterbury. Being selected really sets these students apart as top level musicians. They spend time rehearsing with expert conductors, support the massed choirs, and perform individual numbers. Tuimanino - Representative Senior ChoirLucy - Representative Senior ChoirBrierley - Representative OrchestraOscar - Representative Concert BandRoi - Representative Concert BandA special mention to Brierley and Tui who received their four year medal this year, for being in these groups for four years.
