Kendall students once again showed off their musical talents at the annual Dessert Cabaret fundraiser for the music department on Nov. 4. Sponsored by the Kendall Music Department and Kendall Music Boosters, the event featured desserts and 18 acts, ranging from soloists singing to student bands performing everything from pop music to a song in Italian. Elementary school through high school students performed in the cabaret under the direction of Band Directors Ashlea Strouse and Leanne Zito, and Chorus Director Daniel Lauritzson, with some students performing more than one act. Strouse, Lauritzson and Elementary Chorus Director Jeremy Rath also accompanied the students. Performances occurred in the JSHS auditorium, and then everyone retired to the cafeteria to enjoy desserts during intermission. The audience had a chance to sample three desserts for their $10 ticket price, as well as purchase raffle tickets for gift baskets. Seniors Megan Hardenbrook and Kierstyn Christensen were the emcees of the event.
The Music Department and Music Boosters want to thank all of the generous supporters of the Kendall music program.
