The Upper School hosted its annual Arts Festival on Saturday night. I am always amazed, surprised, humbled, and gratified by the creativity and hard work that blossoms on these occasions. Students courageously sing, dance, interpret, and display extraordinary work. Here are some of the things I saw:
Paws Play, Trinity's A Capella Group, singing an original piece.
The percussion cups were a big hit.
Brie Charles, Rachel Baker, Mackenzie Russell, Emily Sarratt, Ella Rose, Somer Szostak, Alex Gould, Will Stevenson
John Matthews interpreted John Banyan's "The Three Little Pigs."
I don't know who had more fun--John or the audience. Definitely not the pigs.
Abigail Lloyd sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables.
Her clear soprano nailed it.
Sophomore Jeanie Stouffer and Trinity Music Teacher Kaity Woodrum played two Beethoven flute duets:
Allegro and Minuett in G
Leslie Knight and Rachel Hand wrapped up one session (there were three separate rooms, each with three performances) with Taylor Swift's "Safe and Sound."
Pachelbel's "Canon in D"
I've been waiting to hear this piece at Trinity, which always calls forth joy.
