VIDEO: Khowhemun puts on a ‘really big shew’ with Elvis-style holiday spectacular
’White Christmas’ and ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ are the two numbers that Miss MacWatt and Mrs. Ryder’s classes get to sing. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) The talented musicians of Ms. Oitzl and Mrs. Erickson’s classes play ‘Good King Wenceslas’ and ‘Jolly Old St. Nick’. The Khowhemun School guitar group plays ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ for the crowd. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) You’ve heard of ‘air guitar’. How about ‘air saxophone’ as these students perform Merry Christmas Baby. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) ’White Christmas’ sung Elvis-style by elementary students is a real treat for the ears at the Khowhemun show. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) Air band is fun for these Khowhemun Elementary students during their ‘Elvis Spectacular’ concert. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) ‘Santa Claus is Back in Town’ and as cool as ever in the Khowhemun School concert. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) Mr. Gill and Mr. Williams trained their classes in ‘Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me’ and ‘Santa Claus is Back in Town’ and the kids sing them well. ‘Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree’ and ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ are two favourites from Mrs. Nyhan’s, Mrs. Horsfall’s, and Ms. Manj’s classes. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) Little ones from Mrs. Parkins’, Mrs. Cochrane’s, and Mrs. Wandsworth’s classes sing ‘Jingle Bells’ at the Khowhemun concert.

(Lexi Bainas/Citizen) Each of these youngsters has an individual interpretation of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and that just makes it more special than ever to watch. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) They may not all be looking in the same direction but they know it’s ‘Jingle Bells’ they’re singing. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose…” The kids from Khowhemun tell it to an appreciative audience. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) ”Jolly Old St. Nick” is a great seasonal tune for these kids from Khowhemun Elementary. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) ‘Blue Christmas’, sung in real Elvis-style, is lots of fun for these kids from Ms. McCallan’s and Mrs. Uzzell’s classes at the Khowhemun concert. How about ‘Run, Run, Rudolph’ to end the show? Great choice, Khowhemun. ’Run, run, Rudolph even sees the kids in the front row take off into the audience, running like reindeer. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen) The final number ends a delightful concert from Khowhemun Elementary School in Duncan. (Lexi Bainas/Citizen)
“Ah-ha’ll ha-ha-have a blue Christmas wi-hi-hi-hith out you.”
Yes, the Khowhemun Elementary Winter Concert on Dec. 12 was a “really big shew” this year, as teacher Ira Pelletier marshalled the enthusiastic students in an Elvis-style Christmas.
It was fun for everyone: kids and audience alike, watching the Elvis impersonator emcees — Izaiha, Alex, Naeema, Ivy, Kayleigh, Mason, and Daniel introduce each number like the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
With the show featuring everything from little ones playing cardboard saxophones and air piano to older students playing guitars and xylophones, and everyone else singing like crazy, it was a concert fit for a Las Vegas stage.
