The Spring Arts Festival

Tuesday May 21, 5:30-8:30 PM
Jackson Street Gallery, Washington Street Foyer, UHS Theater

Join us for the Spring Arts Festival on Tuesday, May 21, 5:30-8:30 PM! For one exciting evening, see what the UHS Visual Arts and Music Classes have been up to during the spring semester!

First, at the Arts Show (5:30 in the Jackson Street Gallery and Washington Street Foyer), check-out the work of the Photography, Ceramics, and Drawing and Painting classes, as well as some arts-related Independent Studies. Also, see selections from the AP Studio Arts Class – each student in this class worked throughout the school year towards a body of work which culminated in a complete portfolio and showing in April.

Then, at the End-of-Year Concert (7:00 in the Theater), listen to the incredible music stylings from Jazz Combo, Jazz Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra, and Advanced Choir. And don’t forget UHS’ student-led A Cappella group, The Satonics!

To end the school year, the ’23-’24 Jazz Combo Class will play a selection groovin’ Soul-Jazz, Funk, and Brazilian compositions - Guitarist Kenny Burrell’s soul-jazz classic, Chitlins Con Carne, pianist Herbie Hancock’s iconic 70’s Jazz-Funk, Chameleon, and Brazilian composer Luis Bonfa’s alluring and sentimental Black Orpheus, also known as Manhà de Carnaval from the 1959 Portuguese-language film with the same name.

As we finish the 2024 school year, the Jazz and Contemporary Music Ensemble closes out with a selection of hard-hitting original big band pieces and one dance-and-sing-along-in-your-seats-rock classic - An up-tempo blues original, Blues for a New Day, the soul-jazz-funk composition, Sign Me Up, the Afro-Caribbean flavored Chili Today, Hot Tamale, and the get-out-of-your-seats rock legend by the band Journey, Don’t Stop Believin’. The 23-'24 Advanced Choir will be performing music of a variety of styles for the final concert of the year. From a Moravian duet composed by Dvorak, to If I'm Honest written by the pop group Trousdale, Advanced Choir will be sharing tunes from a wide selection of origins and genres.

Support UHS' Student Artists and Musicians and close out the school year with wonderful art and music! Admission is FREE and Open to ALL!
