The annual high school holiday concert, featuring every single musical ensemble in the school, is a wonderful reflection of community.
Community is found in the audience — parents and grandparents, neighbors and friends. More importantly, an incredible community is found on stage — not only are these students musicians, but they are found in athletics, academics, art, speech, robotics, and more. Music is a common language that transcends boundaries.
“When words leave off, music begins.” ~ Heinrich Heine
Performances like these remind us of the importance of music and arts in our schools, and the critical role our public schools play in our communities.
