A number of students participate in the St. Francis of Assisi Middle School band program. Aside from students taking the band option, the opportunity for a jazz band, an honour band, soloists, duettists, and small ensembles are also present. Students in band participate in camps and retreats during the year, the Kiwanis Festival in April, and recruiting performances at our feeder schools. Additionally, students have the opportunity to perform in our annual Christmas and year-end concerts. Students have the opportunity to participate in an excellent Performing Arts program.
Lion King Production
A young lion prince is born in Africa, thus making his uncle Scar the second in line to the throne. Scar plots with the hyenas to kill King Mufasa and Prince Simba, thus making himself King. The King is killed and Simba is led to believe by Scar that it was his fault, and so flees the kingdom in shame only to return and challenge his uncle to be King of the jungle.
Auditions have started for St. Francis’ annual musical. This year we will be presenting Disney’s “The Lion King” in late February and early March at the Memorial Centre. Over 120 students have signed up for auditions times this year and even more are expected for our tech and running crews. September 22 will be the last day for auditions, with the cast list to hopefully be posted by September 26 and tech sheets to soon follow.
