More than 1,500 students from 47 CIS Ontario schools participated in last Sunday’s Conference of Independent Schools Music Festival (CISMF) at Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto.
Among them were 55 CDS students, including three soloists (Gabrielle Goudie ’18, Nick Adams’18 and Kabir Walia’19, and Grade 8 student, Doris Hua, who performed alongside high school students in the String Orchestra). Students auditioned for CISMF in November and have spent countless hours preparing ever since.
As well, our very own Head of Music, Nancy Promane, was awarded this year’s CISMF Leadership in School Music Award by her independent school colleagues for her 25-year commitment to music (15 years as Instrumental Coordinator for CISMF) and ”deep respect for her student musicians and the desire to develop the best within them.”
Congratulations to all of our music students and teachers who put forth a magnificent performance Sunday!
