On Wednesday April 13th, at 9:00 a.m. Westminster will be welcoming a musical performance by the a cappella singing group CADENCE. The show is part of our Arts/Athletics initiative for 2015/2016.
CADENCE amazes audiences with their ability to create a full range of instrumental and vocal sounds using only their voices! This Juno-nominated a cappella quartet illustrates that the voice is the most versatile of all instruments. Tight harmonies, instrumental imitation, high energy and a splash of choreography combine in an energetic and accessible performance for all ages.CADENCE loves performing for children, and all their performances and educational activities are based on these principles:
• Singing is universal: every culture in the world sings.
• Singing is inclusive: it is something we can all do, no matter how “talented” or
experienced we are.
• Singing is unlimited: any sound, any instrument, can be recreated with the voice.
• Singing is fun: If you don’t believe us, just watch us when we perform!
The voice is our first instrument. But singing is not just for the choir: many musical concepts, such as rhythm and dynamics, can be taught initially through the voice. Singing it first eliminates the added dimension of thinking about embouchure, fingering,etc.
Our students are looking forward to this entertaining and educational experience. Parents are welcome to attend.
