Virtual Junior String ensemble

The KDS Junior String ensemble would love to share a video compilation made to showcase their musical prowess! Students (and their parents) videoed their performance which can be viewed HERE. The piece is called Broadway or Bust by Kathy and David Blackwell.

Students have been enjoying remote individual lessons each week across wind, string, brass, percussion and voice and we all look forward to rehearsing all together soon.

This was an unparalleled opportunity to hear some of the world’s greatest big bands.
