Emery/Weiner Upper School students Noah Pacht, Chloe Starr, Brooke Markowitz and Roderick Harris brought the crowd to their feet during a stellar performance to “Hallelujah.”
For 10 years, The Emery/Weiner School has hosted an Evening of the Arts. This night showcases the work of EWS students and faculty from the Middle and Upper School. All students involved in the fine arts department at Emery/Weiner are encouraged and welcomed to participate in this night and put their work on display.
On Thursday night, March 9, students, faculty and their families were invited to look at paintings, photos and drawings that members of the Emery/Weiner community had worked hard to make. During the three-hour event, there were also student dances and performances that amazed the crowd.
Most notably, a performance of “Hallelujah” accompanied with a dance by 9th grader Noah Pacht, 10th grader Chloe Starr, 11th grader Brooke Markowitz and 12th grader Roderick Harris brought tears to some and a standing applause from all that watched.
Senior Roderick Harris said, “With this being my last Evening of the Arts at Emery, I really wanted to make sure that I did the best that I could. I have truly enjoyed my time in the fine arts department and participating in various musicals and plays that the school has put on.”
This night also allowed the school to show off all of the amazing spaces that Emery/Weiner utilizes throughout its fine arts department.
Middle and Upper School artwork was put up around the Hope Kaplan Odyssey Gallery and Black Box Theatre, performances took place in the Becker Theatre, and sculptures were on display in the Steiner Board Room.
While this night allows for all students to show off their work, many pieces of work including sculptures, drawings, and paintings are on display throughout the fine arts wing of the EWS Commons Building year-round.
