As the season of concerts, recitals, and visual shows dawn upon the multiple stages throughout campus, many students are diligently working in preparation for the several performances scheduled throughout the upcoming months.

 

Dance

The dance department has begun to choreograph their first recital of the school year. Featuring new dancers in the department, the Aspiring Artists Dance Showcase will be held on Oct. 20 at the Brandt Black Box Theatre. Later performances will include the Fall Dance Concert held on Nov. 10-12 at Meyer Hall. Known for its fall-themed backdrops, intricate costumes, and autumn songs, the Fall Dance Concert is one of the many seasonal recitals held throughout the school year.

 

Music

Within the music department, there are several different concerts with varying styles and instruments. The Philharmonic Orchestra is composed of string instruments including cellos and violins, along with being accompanied by piano, band, and percussion instruments. Students who perform in the Philharmonic Orchestra must audition at the end of every school year to receive a seat in the orchestra. The Philharmonic Orchestra will be performing on Sept. 28 at Meyer Hall.

The String Orchestra is primarily composed of violins, violas, and cellos but occasionally will feature a guest pianist. The String Orchestra’s first concert will be rescheduled from the original date on Sept. 19 at Meyer Hall to Oct. 5. The concert will feature returning and new musicians.

The vocal department will be showcasing a Chorus Concert on Oct. 3 at Meyer Hall. The concert will feature lively songs, as they welcome back friends and family to their first concert of the school year.

The piano department is scheduled to showcase their first Impromptu Concert on Oct. 12 through 14 at the Brandt Black Box Theater. Being one of the smaller theaters on campus, the intimate atmosphere provides the audience with a close relationship to the harmonious music and the musicians.

In preparation for the Jazz Combos Concert on Oct. 24 at the Brandt Black Box Theater, musicians are practicing during lunch rehearsals, in-class, and after school. The Jazz Combos concert will feature brass and percussion instruments, as they light up the stage with exuberant, musical notes.

 

Communications

The Speech and Debate Team will be hosting their annual fundraiser, SpeakEasy, On Oct. 14 in Building 1. This event will feature a wide range of speech and debate events from Extemporaneous Speaking to Original Oratory. Because observers are generally prohibited from watching students perform at tournaments, the fundraiser offers the chance for friends and family to watch students perform at their events.

 

Visual and Digital

Students of the visual and digital department were required to create several pieces of artwork over the summer ranging from paintings, photographs, and sculptures. Using these pieces, visual students will be showcasing their summer artwork at the Visual/Digital Summer Show. Although the show was planned for Sept. 6, the original date of the show is being rescheduled to Sept. 27 due to complications with severe weather. Artwork can be currently seen in Building 9.

 

Theatre

The theatre department underwent auditions and callbacks to fill up the roles for their upcoming production “Kiss Me Kate.” The broadway musical features comedic and humorous scenes, along with romance. The theatre department will have its opening night on Oct. 27 at Meyer Hall. Following dates include Oct. 28 through Nov. 5.

Jennifer Jia, Editor-in-Chief
Communications senior Jennifer Jia is a third-year staffer and the Editor-in-Chief of The Muse. She is also a member of the Speech and Debate Team, the social media manager of her local nature center, and a member of her school’s honor societies. When she is not obsessively researching about college or attempting to study 12 hours straight for her AP classes, she enjoys writing, drawing, and taking nature hikes—yes, even in Florida’s melting heat. Her goal as the Editor-in-Chief is to provide quality journalism that the newsmagazine’s audience can enjoy, whether that would be articles, videos, social media posts, or layout designs. Undoubtedly, her time in the publication has given her a voice, a passion for journalism that she hopes to continue, and most importantly, The Muse family who she considers to have created lifelong friendships. While the publication can be stressful at times, she embraces a positive attitude and can thoroughly say that The Muse has been the highlight of her high school experience.
