School Ensembles

Over the course of nearly 25 years of teaching, I have had the priviledge of working with some incredibly talented students, mostly at Bancroft School in Montreal, Canada.

I was the artistic director and musical director for 15 musical theatre productions, some of which with casts of over 200 students!  

From very humble beginnings performing Beauty and the Beast in the school gymnasium, our projects just kept growing. 

Eventually the amazing parent community rallied to build a full stage, complete with trap doors and multiple tracks for moving scenery behind and in front of the stage.  Eventually, we also invested in professional lighting.  Our last production, The Little Mermaid, had 265 lighting cues!

Some of our productions have included: The Lion King,  Annie, Into The Woods, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Madagascar and many more!

CBC National Champions!

Our ensembles have been recognized as some of the best in the country through our participation in the National CBC Music Class Challenge.

In 2019 we won the National Champion top prize in the Indigenous Language Song category.  

In 2021, five our our ensembles made the top-ten finalist lists, and we won a third place in the Elementary Vocal category.  

In 2023, two groups made the national finals, and we won a third place in Primary Vocal.
