5th – 8th Graders Make Beautiful Music

April 29, 2014

Holy Cross students gathered to make joyful noise together last week at the annual Spring Concert. The concert included performances by the 5th grade band, 6th grade band, junior high band, jazz band, 5th grade, 6th grade and junior high vocal choirs, junior high bell choir and drama class, along with several solo and small group highlights.

This was the concert debut of our new Holy Cross Jazzy Hornets jazz band. And they sounded great!

The big finale of the show featured all of the students in grades 5 through 8 gathering to sing ‘I Need You To Survive’ by Frazier.

Thanks to our music director Mrs. Cain, junior high choir director Mrs. Kincaid, drama director Ms. Marx, and the accompianists and other helpers who made this night possible.

Bands Perform at St. Cecilia Band Festival

April 4, 2014

from Holy Cross music director, Mrs. Cain –

The Holy Cross bands performed at the St. Cecilia Band Festival hosted by Saint Thomas Aquinas Wednesday night.  Ten bands from six different schools from the Archdiocese had the opportunity to perform two songs for the other schools.  We ended the concert with one mass band piece called “Freedom Finale.”  The Holy Cross bands represented their school in a great way.  

All three of the bands are preparing for the Spring Concert on Thursday, April 24. Plus, come listen to the 5th and 6th grade bands perform at Barnes and Noble Book Fair this weekend at 10:30 (6th) and 11:15 (5th). GO BAND!!

Making Music

March 14, 2014

from Holy Cross music director, Mrs. Cain –

Do you know what a chordophone is? How about a aerophone?  Well, Holy Cross 4th graders sure do!  

After students learned the classifications of each type of instrument, they were challenged to make their own kind of instrument.  With instruments with names like the “Legit Drum 2000”, “Trasher” and Combustion Drum”, we could definitely have a Holy Cross STOMP group. The students had a great time making instruments out of everyday materials such as coffee cans, gift wrap rollers, fishing line, buckets, and more.

Third Graders Experience A Symphony

February 17, 2014

from Holy Cross music director, Mrs. Cain –

Holy Cross third graders attended The Kansas City Symphony’s KinderKonzert: Symphonic Citizenship on Wednesday, February 12 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.

Through music we explored traits that make good citizens and build strong communities including teamwork, sharing, and following directions. The students loved seeing all of the wonderful instruments including the harp, french horn, cellos and more.  We especially enjoyed hearing the organ being played.

Did you know there are over 5,000 pipes that make up the organ at the Kauffman Center?  The biggest pipe is over 35 feet and the smallest and is as big as your pinkie finger!!  We had a great time!!
