Spring Art

As the green foliage and bright floral colors on campus reveal their beauty each spring, our students display their artistic talents after months of hard work and practice. See some recent highlights below from our drama, studio art, photography, and music programs. 

Last week the Omnibus Players held three performances of Treasure Island, all of which sold out. This adventurous adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel finds young Jim Hawkins as he discovers a treasure map in a dead pirate’s sea-chest. Jim is led on an expedition across the ocean to recover a fortune in plundered gold. Fair winds and favorable seas soon give way to mutiny, greed, and the evil machinations of a one-legged scoundrel named Long John Silver. Jim endeavors on an unforgettable adventure as he fights for his life — and the lives of his friends — in this legendary tale of piracy and heroism. The production involved students from the lower, middle, and upper schools in acting, directing, management, and design roles. Practice over the course of five months, culminating in an intense tech week, resulted in an invigorating performance.

The annual spring art exhibit offers The Heights community an opportunity to enjoy the work of students in studio art and photography courses. All are welcome to peruse the pieces, which vary from acrylic and water paintings to pencil sketches and clay models. Please join us in the living room for the display throughout the week. 

Finally, please join us this evening for our spring band concert, featuring the upper school wind ensemble, middle school symphonic band, and fifth grade band. The music department will also host its spring chorus concert, on Thursday, April 25, featuring the upper school men’s chorus under the direction of Dr. Kevin Strother and grade 3-6 boys’ choir under the direction of Mr. Patrick Love.
