Sight-Singing with Fine Arts Highschool students in Matanzas, Cuba


Take Away Show: Oasis’ “Wonderwall”

Excellent revision of an acoustic classic by Olga Belikov, recorded on a spring day in grade twelve. It literally doesn’t get better.

The Room in Between Sessions (with Vanessa & Nina)

Vanessa and Nina recorded this intimate cover of Kate Nash’s “I hate Seagulls” during guitar class in the last week of May, 2011.

Talons Live at Fisgard Lighthouse

Musical Talons students, accompanied by Mr. Jackson, recorded this Take Away Show edition of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros‘ “Home” over the May Long Weekend’s Adventure Trip. Other notable videos from the district highschool gifted program’s visit to the National Historic Site include senior Olga Belikov’s spellbinding cover of Josh Ritter’s “Girl in the War,” and a duet between grade ten Donya Pourtaghi and Mr. J on M. Ward’s “Chinese Translation.”

The Late Slips cover Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene

An early rehearsal (sans Kyle’s drums) of Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up.”

Mr. Poka dropped by one day to help film this burgeoning version of Broken Social Scene’s “7/4 Shoreline.”

A student-group which was convened to play at Gleneagle’s Voices 2010 Benefit Concert, Mr. J & The Late Slips enjoyed a run of rehearsals covering Canadian indie-juggernauts Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene, as well as Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Mumford and Sons, and others before playing their debut show in April, as well as the schools awards night this June. They are currently on hiatus during exam week, but are looking to perform in the local community through the summer, and begin with an expanded cast of contributors and performers in the new school year.

“Home” on the Last Day of School

Though we may have a way to go before we catch up to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros version of “Home,” we hope you enjoy the sing-along that broke out on the last day of school.

A good day in June, and a great end to a terrific semester!
