The Mater Dei Performing Arts Department has had a New York City theme to this school year. We began with a Project: Discourse production of West Side Story and the Advanced Theatre Arts play was The Great Gatsby. Both of these shows were set in NYC.
Our next production, the 39th Annual Senior Musical is directed by Mr. Scott Melvin. This year’s production is In the Heights which is set in the Washington Heights area of NYC. Please come our to support the cast of 80+ seniors this weekend.
Last month our Jazz Band competed at the Heritage Festival in NYC and received a Silver award. Mr. Martinez has done an incredible job improving our band program. Last week they performed their annual event Red Hot Jazz with professional musicians.
Our Advanced Women’s Ensemble and the Chambers Choir travelled to NYC to perform at Carnegie and Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The Chambers singers performed on the Today Show from Rockefeller Center. Click here to hear & see their performance.
