Road to Freedom - Songbird
In the fall of 2008 KSS recorded Road to Freedom, which features readings by Bryan and Shannon Prince of first-hand accounts they have collected of enslaved people who found freedom in Canada via the Underground Railroad.
The CD was produced by renowned producer and recording arts educator Kevin Doyle at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario, and a small team of students from Fanshawe also documented the recording process on video. This video is the result.

The classic American folk song, Shenandoah, was one of the pieces in our May 2010 River concert. Here's a short snippet of this luscious arrangement by Bob Chilcott, filmed at our dress rehearsal the week of the concert.
Sing, Sing, Sing
Our Love is in the Air concert in March 2010 featured many jazz and big band tunes, including Louis Prima's Sing, Sing, Sing. One of the highlights of the evening for some of our patrons, I'm sure, was when the audience got to participate in this song by snapping along in rhythm, conducted by Karen.
