"I know I'm no glamour girl, and it's not easy for me to get up in front of a crowd of people. It used to bother me a lot, but now I've got it figured out that God gave me this talent to use, so I just stand there and sing."
Ella Fitzgerald

Mrs. Schumer and Mr. Friesen are our amazing Middle & High School Music teachers. In extraordinary times the investment into community values grows as does the  KCS Music Department’s vision is to passionately develop and maintain a vibrant, diverse music program of bands, ensembles, choirs and worship teams that serve as key places of engagement and belonging in our community.



The KCS High School choir put on a fantastic end-of-year performance to our Benvoulin Campus, showcasing the hard work that they put in all year long. Well done singers!

Various opportunities are available for students, including:

  • Concert Band (Gr. 6-12)
  • Jazz Band (Gr. 6-12)
  • High School Jazz Combo
  • Chapel Worship Teams (Gr. 6-12)
  • Middle School Choir
  • High School Choir

We are always seeking to grow and expand our KCS Music Department. Our desire is to provide exciting opportunities for our students to experience music in new ways through festivals, trips, band clinics, recording opportunities and events. In fact, our students have travelled to Anaheim to perform on stage in Disneyland and also participated in a Soundtrack Session workshop with a Disney Conductor! Check out the worship songs composed and recorded by our High School Chapel Worship Teams below.

The KCS Music Department also coordinates three annual events for our community. We invite you to join us for the Middle & High School Christmas Concert, Jazz & Java Café Fundraiser, and Middle & High School Spring Concert.

Not only does playing an instrument improve IQ and cognitive skills, the gift of music has the power to inspire and change the lives of our students.
