Hardin Valley Middle School celebrates the arts

Nancy Anderson, Shopper News

Parents and students gathered May 13 at Hardin Valley Middle School for a celebration of the arts. More than 200 works of art were on display.

Advanced Art teacher Stephanie Beiting said the whole fine arts department — including the band and chorus — were excited to have a show this year because the annual event was canceled last year by the pandemic.

“We’ve had to make a few modifications due to the pandemic. We’ll be outside this year. I’ve made displays out of coroplast that are pretty sturdy, but we’re still hoping for no wind and good weather.

 “It’s actually a big celebration of the arts because we’ve invited the band, orchestra, and chorus. They’re very excited to join us. They’ll be performing outside in front of the entrance.”

Attendees seemed to particularly enjoy performances by the orchestra under the direction of Kathryn York and the chorus who, under the direction of Susie Whitinger, sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” by Randy Newman. The jazz band under the direction of Tyler Smith was popular, performing “Ketchup is Not a Spice” by Dean Sorenson. The percussion ensemble under the direction of Abigail Lyon kept toes tapping with “Crazy Dance” by Josh Walker.
