Art exhibit showcases work from around LA
After a two-year hiatus during the construction of Munger Hall, Marlborough is hosting its 25th Invitational Art Exhibition in the new Seaver Gallery, showcasing the work of students from eight Los Angeles high schools.
The eight schools chosen—Oakwood, Crossroads, Archer, Viewpoint, Loyola, Westridge, Harvard-Westlake, and Buckley—curate their own group of artists. Visual arts instructor Chelsea Dean, who organized the show, increased the diversity of work to allow student artists to submit jewelry, sculpture, film, painting and other media.
“The work was strong and the styles, techniques and materials complemented each other well to create a really interesting show,” said Dean.
The artists and their teachers came to view the students’ pieces when the show opened. Their peers and adults alike admired the skill they saw.
“I liked being able to see all the different types of art that other high schoolers created – the photography is always great, but seeing the jewelry that was there was really cool as well,” Chloe ’12.
The show opened Feb. 25 and ended March 19.
Vocalist in residence to teach master class
Renowned American opera singer and President of the San Francisco Opera Center Sheri Greenawald will visit the school in late April as this year’s Vocalist in Residence. She will teach opera techniques and Italian art songs to four selected students.
Students will have two one-hour private coaching sessions with Greenawald and then take part in a master class with her. The workshops will culminate in a performance at the Spring Choral Concert April 23 and a concert for invited guests, including members of the Board of Trustees and the Presidents of the Los Angeles Symphony and Opera.
Taste of the spotlight
Student musicians, producers, sound engineers, singers, songwriters, music journalists and promoters will be able to audition for the 2010 Grammy Camp.
Grammy camp gives high school students the opportunity to advance their professional careers by working with industry professionals.
Taylor ’10 took part in the camp last year as a singer/songwriter. Taylor said it inspired her to take her passion more seriously.
The application deadline is March 31 and is available at www.grammyintheschools.com.
