Last Saturday, the Gloucester Public School District Arts Festival took over several venues in the center of Gloucester, including City Hall, the Cape Ann Museum, the Sawyer Free Library, Alchemy, and Art Haven. I’ll be posting photos of the displays in a few of these locations.
For today, here are some photos of the musical presentations at City Hall by the GHS Chorus and the GHS Docksiders. As usual, their performances were outstanding!
There were many other beautiful moments during these performances, including the vocal talents of a student who won prizes for her performance at Disney World, but I could not capture them all.
It was appropriate that all these talented young people were performing under the message written on the wall: “Build not for today alone but for tomorrow as well.” Teaching these children and young adults to develop their talents, to share their gifts, and to dare to dream of great achievements, is an important way of building for tomorrow. Thanks and kudos to all the teachers, coaches, etc., who help the children of our community realize their potential!
