Christmas Cafe 2015 Student Performance

I was so proud of my students at last night's concert! Twenty singers aged 7 to 70 performed last night at the Kelowna Voice Lab student cafe in downtown Kelowna. This monthly vocal concert is held downtown at O-Lake Cafe and Bistro on Lawrence. The coffee shop was packed as more than 65 audience members attended the concert to hear the singers perform their favourite songs. Two of the singers (one aged 7 and the other an adult) performed their very first solos of their lives last night and it was fantastic to see them take that first giant leap forward to share their talents with others.

The vocal students sang a wide range of music from traditional carols like "The Christmas Song", "White Christmas" and "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" to  comedy songs like "Nuttin' For Christmas" and "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch". All of the voice students performed the jazz song "Home For Christmas" together as a choir and two different trios performed last night singing "Hot Chocolate" and "Solitary Snowflake". One student accompanied himself on guitar for "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and Kim performed the duet "Winter Song" with her adult student Jennifer. The concert was a great success and everyone who attended left with a big smile on their face.

The next student cafe performance will be held on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 and the theme will be "Classic Love Songs" in time for Valentine's Day.
