Please be sure to join us for the Applied Music Recital on Monday, February 18, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the Lyndon South Auditorium of the Stroud Academic Center.
Students involved in the Winter Applied Music Program have been studying their instruments with private music teachers at Tabor. In all, there are 13 private music instructors who come to campus to teach weekly lessons on voice and a variety of instruments. The students in the Winter Applied Music Program dedicate their afternoons to work both individually and in small groups to increase their proficiency and improve their ensemble skills.
This recital will feature seniors Kelly Chang (cello) and Ayi Dolby (piano) as well as junior violinists Xuanru Liu and Kyohei Tabata and junior cellist Violet Southwick. They will be performing an eclectic mix of music ranging from Maria Theresia Paradis and Georg Eduard Goltermann to a blues piano piece by Martha Mier, with two movements from a violin concerto by Giovanni Battista Viotti as well.
Please come and share in the fun and excitement of this live musical performance!
Tabor Academy invites the public to their performance of their winter musical, Heathers: The Musical (HSE) on February 14-16 at 7:30 PM.
Heathers: The Musical, a satire dealing with the challenges of teen life, became an Off-Broadway hit in 2014. Because the subject matter was so relevant to high schools, the creators of the show, Kevin Murphy and Laurence O’Keefe, worked closely with Pearce High School in Richardson, TX, from 2015 through 2016 to develop a “toned-down,” high school edition (HSE) of the show. Tabor’s director, Mark Howland said, “While Heathers: The Musical (HSE) delves into such hot-button topics as body shaming, sexual harassment, and suicide, it does so with humor and sensitivity. The creators have claimed in fact that they feel the show is about female empowerment. Rather than avoid these taboo topics, Heathers: The Musical (HSE) tackles them head on but through the lens of satire, showing us that high schoolers need to be kinder to each other, and adults who work with them need to be more clued in. Our goal is that the show be a catalyst for the school community to further awareness and empathy.”
The show runs February 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 PM in Tabor’s Fireman Center for the Performing Arts in Hoyt Hall at 245 Front Street, Marion. It is free and open to the public, no tickets or reservations required.
