Sandhills Classical Christian Features Arts
Sandhills Classical Christian School's students drew a crowd of almost 200 people for the annual Night of the Arts event held this year on Feb. 22.
The evening featured artistic works ranging from paintings to choral performances.
Sixth-grade pianist Wyatt Parson and seventh-grade saxophonist Ria Gameros presented prelude music and were followed by the choral group who performed several pieces.
Violinists as young as kindergarteners showed what they have learned in the school's Suzuki strings club. The drama club recorded a humorous and silent movie version of the play, "The Tale of William Tell." Throughout the evening, the work of all 130 students was on display in the gallery.
"The evening is a showcase of the school's full spectrum of creative talent and a wonderful opportunity for guests to get a taste of the arts at Sandhills Classical," says the school's principal Joanna Martin. "The arts are integral to a classical education."
