Thursday the 19th was a night to remember. TCP students exhibited their creativity and musicality in the annual spring concert and art show.
The night started off with a display of artistic abilities from the art students.
There were both pieces from 2D Art and 3D Art on display. It is mandatory to have a piece in the show if you are taking an art class.
The 2D art class had black and white prints of various objects. These prints were called woodprints. There were twenty-three of them on display, and they were hanging on a wall.
3D art class made lures for their dreams out of cloth. There were fifty-seven lures on display. There was caution tape around the project to protect the audience from the sharp hooks that were attached to the majority of the pieces.
There were also tags near each piece with the individual’s name and the name of their artwork.
Later, the music program got to show off. Choir began the concert, followed by Beginning Strings and Chamber Orchestra. The performance finished up with a lively rendition of “O Sifuni Mungu,” which was sung by the entire collection of music students.
“I liked ‘O Mine Eyes,’” said Sarah Cramer, junior, referring to a choir piece, “because it was beautiful and sad.”
Preparing for the concert was hard work for all involved. Music students had to practice the plethora of pieces for the concert. The spring newsletter was written by students as well. Mrs. Terauchi was obviously very involved in directing the activities, teaching her classes, and helping the students reach their goals as well.
“We practiced a lot and listened to a recording of ourselves,” said Cramer, indicating that when they first listened to themselves sing, they felt there was much work to do. However she noted, “We all worked very hard to make it a success.”
Later this year, the music department will be playing the pre-graduation concert and “Pomp and Circumstance” for the seniors.
