We had an eventful fall season with all the arts! The year began with an exhibit by Science Department Chair Tara Weinstein and her exhibit, “Dabbling”! “Dabbling” showcased Tara’s appreciation for learning new things from shoemaking, watercolor, clothes-making via loom, and more. It was a sight to behold! We also hosted Coco Klockner ’10 and their exhibit “Transpessimism”, and an exhibit by our very own Lower School Students! “A Study of Lascaux and Paleolithic Mark-Making” took a cue from ancient cave paintings found in France. It was a thrill to see the Swartley Gallery transformed in different ways.
Our Music Department kicked off the first performance of the year with the Stage Band Jazz Brunch. Directed by faculty member Rob DeBellis, the show was a hit featuring jazz tunes in a low-lit Hajjar Auditorium. Guests enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch to pair with the swanky atmosphere!
Finally, the Performing Arts Department showcased a brilliant rendition of Qui Nguyen’s play, “She Kills Monsters”! The play follows Agnes after the death of her sister Tilly as she uncovers the imaginary world of Tilly’s “Dungeons and Dragons” module. It was a moving piece about grief, belonging, and fantasy. Cheers to the whole cast, crew, and Director Robert Murphy!
