The Fine Arts theme this year is “Soaring into the Arts”. The week will open on Monday, January 25, with a schoolwide Art Gallery from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Come view the beautiful artwork, enjoy a snack, and participate in the hands-on clinics offered to all families. During the week students will enjoy working with clinicians in art, music, dance, and drama. On Friday, plan to attend the morning assembly which will include performances by Dianné Aldrich and the MCDS dance clubs, and drama presentations led by James Wagoner.
Fine Arts Week will wrap up with the Jazz Showcase on Friday, January 29, at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. The Jazz Showcase allows our MCDS students to perform with professional musicians at an event that turns our gym into an authentic-looking jazz club. The theme of the Jazz Showcase this year is “The Legends” and will pay tribute to some of the greatest names in jazz history. We are also welcoming the “Funky Drummer”, Clyde Stubblefield!
