The saying of "saving the best for last" is appropriate in the eyes, ears, voices, and souls of Del fine arts students. As the school year was winding down at the end of April, this year's Arts Festival opened with the extraordinary and professional production of "Mary Poppins" complete with a floating Mary, spectacular sets, and a cast of thousands.
The following week featured the stupendous work of Ms. Domingues' Grade 12 Media Arts class in the Brother Michael Room of the Heritage House. The official reception of this 18th annual exhibition of our gifted visual artists took place on the evening of May 2nd. The students' skill in manipulating digital, and other media, images was astounding, creating imaginative and provocative works.
The third week showcased the talents of all our music students. Tuesday night's programme included the Jazz Band and classes from Grades 5 to 8. It was clear to see the formidable progression through the grades. Wednesday night was reserved for the Graduate recital where our Grade 12 dedicated students put on solo performances with accompaniment. Thursday evening was reserved for our Grade 9 to 12 classes and concert bands. Thanks to Maestros Shields and Thompson for their creative leadership.
During concert week, the expansive Grade 5 to 11 Art Show was also on display on the main floor. All kinds of media, ranging from drawing to painting to digital treating diverse subjects like sacred hearts and Surrealism were on offer.
De La Salle is proud of our Liberal Arts tradition, and the Arts Festival is a strong representation of this.
