Musician Carlos Menezes- one of world’s greatest middle school band teachers!

O’Maley bands and choruses killing it. Great job Gloucester!

And no wonder. Listen to this teacher and share: Carlos Menezes delivers an awesome introduction inspired by his students and the extraordinary Charles Allan Winter WPA-era mural at City Hall.

GHS Music at City Hall

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!

The GHS Chorus shared their talent with the community

The Docksiders were in great form!

While the Docksiders played, it was hard not to want to dance. Some children gave in to the music and started dancing together.

The angle of this panorama makes it look like there was more empty space than there really was There were lots of people in the balcony, in the seats, and at the activity tables around the auditorium.

For the grand finale, the Chorus, the Docksiders, and other children from the public schools performed “We Are the World”.

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!
