Spring 2020 Music Recital

Students enrolled in Kish’s private music classes performed selections from their semester of study in voice, piano, and guitar. Sit back and enjoy the sounds of classical works and maybe an original piece or two. 

Virtual Performing Arts 

The Kish Performing Arts Club members had to cancel their spring play because of the pandemic. Instead, they put together two virtual group performances on Zoom, a reading from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and a reading from The Humans by Matt Haig.

This video combines individual student performances, including a clarinet solo, two original poems, a song from the musical Wicked, and an uplifting monologue.
