City students performing at Artscape
If you're going to be at Artscape today and over the weekend, here's a list of the performances by Baltimore city students.
Performing from noon to 3:30 p.m. today at the UB stage (at Charles Street and Lafayette Avenue) will be the Hampstead Hills Orchestra and Choir, Frederick Douglass High School Jazz Ensemble, St. Veronica’s Steel Drum Orchestra, Francis Scott Key Summer Drama Club, Southside Academy drama students, and ConneXions Community Leadership Academy drum troupe.
The Douglass Jazz Ensemble also will be the featured guest performers at the Chick Webb Jazz Combo Competition. This is a companion to the Billie Holiday and Cab Calloway Jazz Vocal Competitions. This event (like the rest of Artscape, free and open to the public) will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Everyman Theatre.
Students' visual artwork will be on display all weekend in the Target Family Art Park, located near the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Students will exhibit and sell original works of art. The BCPSS Pavilion will also include hands-on art projects coordinated by teachers.
