The K.S.S. Fine Arts Society annual Premiere Performance May 1 once again proved why music students from Kwalikum Secondary School under the leadership of Dave Stewart and Dan Craven continue to win awards for their performances.

The event at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre was a scaled down version and did not include the visual arts but the tradition of excellence from the music program made for a stellar evening of music.

The program opened with a performance by the grade 9/10 concert band conducted by Stewart.  Next up, the Grade 9/12 concert choir under the direction of Stewart wowed the crowd with five songs including an arrangement of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

The brass quintet brilliantly performed Three Pieces and Donkey Riding.

The Grade 9/12 concert band under the direction of Craven played three selections including Bravura, one of the best known Circus Marches of all time.

The evening ended with the massed concert band led by Craven performing Fanfare and Furiosity.

Clearly, The KSS music department is having another stellar year.
