The Evening of Fine Arts Spotlights Students’ Talents

By Emily Knepple, Arts & Entertainment Editor

With high anticipation after last year’s inaugural event, the Creative Arts Council hosted its second annual Evening of Fine Arts on May 30. The night called for participation from all grades and encouraged students to showcase their artistic abilities in any way, shape or form.

As the school year comes to a close, the event served as a capstone for seniors who participate in the arts. Senior Lilly McCann made her ukelele debut with a solo performance of “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas.

“It was a very special moment for me.” McCann said about her final performance for Trinity Hall’s Art program. “The applause that came at the end reminded me of how much this community has supported me and shaped me into the performer I am today.”

Visual art submitted by students was also displayed around the room. Junior Kate Burgess showcased her work done in the art courses she has taken this year: Photography, Advanced Studio Art and Foundation Drawing.

Creative Arts Council chair, junior Hailey Hartnett, worked hard this year to make this night to happen. After many conversations with the rest of the council, theater teacher Ellen Phillips and Head of School Mrs Sciarillo, the date was finalized and Hartnett worked on getting students to confidently participate.

“It’s been something I had on my mind on since I was elected as the chair last year,” Hartnett said. “To see it finally come to life and to have played such a big role in its production was very emotional for me.”

As it is a busy time of year for all students, with final projects, graduation, and the school year coming to a close, the night provided relief from all of the surrounding stress. Senior Kyla Whitlock, who attended the event said, “I needed a break from all the chaos going on with graduation.”  

The night also served as a fitting way to commemorate the school’s arts program and the diverse talents of the student body. “I can’t wait to have it again next year,” Hartnett said.
