Within our visual arts exhibit spaces and on our performing arts stages, D-E students’ exceptional artistic endeavors were evident at the close of the 2016-17 academic year. Lower School students showcased Shakespeare in dramatic fashion and those who are involved in the LS string ensemble program capably kicked off the annual Orchestra Extravaganza concert. Upper School musicians Maxine Musto ’17 (violin) and Elliot Roman ’17 (flute) demonstrated why they were chosen as the 2017 Concerto Competition winners when each were also featured in the Extravaganza. The Middle School Spring Arts Festival paid a tribute to master entertainer Walt Disney, thanks to the Show Choir and MS Handbells ensembles. And the 60+ students from all three divisions who participated in the School’s private music lessons program performed a wonderful series of recitals in Hajjar Auditorium.
