The D-E Performing and Visual Arts Department presented several festivals, exhibits and concerts during the first few months of the 2016–17 academic year, demonstrating an impressive range of artistic endeavors at the School. Instrumental ensembles featured in performances included the Middle School African Drum ensembles, Middle and Upper School Handbells ensembles, the Middle and Upper School Orchestras, StageBand, StringJam, the Middle School Wind Ensemble, and the Middle School Show Choir. The Upper School Fall Play, All in the Timing, was an exciting collaboration of student- and faculty-directed plays by David Ives. And vivid watercolors, line drawings, and scratch artwork on display during the Middle School Winter Arts Festival in early December showcased the breadth of visual arts talent present at D-E.
