by MCS Staff

Dozens of MCPS high school seniors were recognized for their accomplishments in dance, theatre performance, technical theatre, choral and instrumental music, media arts, and 2D and 3D visual art at the 22nd annual Superintendent’s All-County Fine Arts Awards Celebration on May 22 at Seneca Valley High School.

The event featured musical and dance performances from four high schools, plus the All-County Dance Ensemble, which performed Origins, choreographed by Alice Howes and directed by Tiffany Alastanos. Other performances included—

  • The Winston Churchill High School Jazz Ensemble performing “Switch in Time,” arranged by Sammy Nestico and directed by Ari Allal.
  • A James Hubert Blake High School dance performance of “Hold Back the River.” This performance is about two people who care for one another but life experiences have taken them in different directions. As they continue their journey throughout life, the two find comfort in knowing the other person is there for them as they discover who they are in life. Choreographed by Danielle D’Anna.
  • The Clarksburg High School Competitive Indoor Marching Winds presented “The Wasteland,” based on the work of T.S. Eliot. This piece was directed by Chuck Orifici.
  • Seneca Valley High School Theatre presented “When You’re An Addams” from “The Addams Family – A New Musical,” directed by Joanna Fellows.
