Dessert Cabaret Features a Variety of Songs and Sweets

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 19 acts, ranging from soloists singing to student bands performing everything from pop music to jazz. Elementary school through high school students performed in the cabaret under the direction of Band Directors Ashlea Strouse and Lilli Woodbury, and Chorus Director Bryce Weber, with some students performing more than one act. Strouse and Weber 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. Juniors Brian Shaw and Noah Rath were the emcees of the event.
