Seniors display art, perform individually

By Sarah Novicoff

The Senior Art Show, displaying the achievements of senior artists in Photography, 3-D Art, Advanced Drawing and Painting and AP Studio Art, opened in Feldman Horn Gallery at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

“It is really a celebration of seniors,” Melissa Flores ’12 said. “It is a time to show off work that hasn’t been shown over the past three years.”

The Senior Solo Night followed the art show at 7 p.m. and presented an opportunity for seniors to show off their voices individually. Though many had been in choir for three years, the performance allowed them to showcase their vocal talents in a way they hadn’t been previously. Singers had the freedom to choose any song they wanted to perform.

“It’s a culmination of three years of working really hard in the Performing Arts department,” Chamber Singer Charlie Troy ’12 said. “It’s nothing like normal choir music, and it’s a great opportunity for people to really have fun in one last shebang.”

Most students were accompanied by Dr. Sara Shakliyan-Mendez, but some opted to have other students play for them. Troy accompanied Bella Gonzalez ’12 and Justine Goode ’12 on guitar.

Sally McGrath ’12 sang “The Right Man,” a Christina Aguilera song.

“It’s a song that I’ve sung by myself in my car for years, and I felt like it was time to take it public,” she said.
