At Hewitt’s second annual Upper School Arts Day, students in grades 9 through 12 celebrated performances of original student-choreographed dance pieces, choral and a cappella singing, instrumental music ranging from early Renaissance to The Beatles, theater scenes and monologues, and enjoyed displays of student films, photography, painting, and ceramics. Students and faculty performed together on stage in the Renaissance Consort, and the beginning guitar class ensemble gave their debut! In the audience, high schoolers and teachers cheered for the student artists, both awed and inspired by the skills and talents they saw on stage.
Hewitt’s Upper School Arts Day showcased not only the incredible talent and creativity of our students, but also the skills they learn through both performing and visual arts. Public speaking, performing under pressure, developing a vision and seeing it through, long-term preparation, critical thinking, evaluating one's own skills, and working both independently and as a team are foundational to developing confidence and building capacity to be a game changing leader in any field.
