2021 - A Spring Outdoor Performance

The Spring Music and Dance Performance, "A Breath of Fresh Air," was on April 28, 2021 on Kelly Mac Field. This was an accomplishment for all of our performing groups after a challenging year of teaching and learning through a pandemic. We were very fortunate to have a beautiful evening to hold our first outdoor performance. Due to having two cohorts and students remote, this had been the first time in the school year that each ensemble performed--played, danced, or sung--together.
