The evening will begin at 7:30 PM in the front lobby  with vocal performances by VHS students under the direction of Sean Clancy and Judy Szybist.  Instrumental performances will begin at 8:30 PM, under the direction of Erik Lynch, Taylor Reed, and Max Morden.  At 8:30 PM, the VHS Spotlight Players, under the guidance of Stephen Munoz, will perform student directed one-act plays in the Learning Commons.

The VHS art department wishes to extend a sincere thanks to Investor’s Bank for a generous grant of $5,000  for the new exhibition panels that we are using tonight.  We also wish to thank:  Clinton Glass in Verona for their donation of  mirror and colored glass; the VEA for their Creative Arts Festival grant; and the SCA for the ongoing monetary support that the festival receives for supplies, decorations and materials needed each year to put the show together.
