The community is invited to a showcase of Kershaw County student visual and performing art at "Celebrating the Arts of Kershaw County Schools" on Thursday, Feb. 25 at Lugoff-Elgin High School.
Student art displays will be available for viewing from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the LEHS gymnasium, and the performing arts program will start at 6:45 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. The LEHS percussion ensemble will provide entertainment during the visual art display time while the LEHS jazz band will play musical selections prior to the performing arts program.
"This showcase is a wonderful event to highlight the outstanding student artists that we have across the district," Executive Director for Instructional Support Programs Alisa Taylor said. "We welcome all family, friends and community members to join us for this special evening."
The program features dance, theater, choral and instrumental performances and visual art pieces from students at all 20 Kershaw County schools.
LEHS student Zachary Koeppen will be the Master of Ceremonies. In addition to several musical numbers from the district’s combined elementary, middle and high school choirs, the Camden High School jazz band and the North Central High School woodwind quintet will perform instrumental selections. Also performing will be the LEHS dancers and LEHS and CHS theater students. An instrumental medley will be performed by violinists from Camden Elementary and Doby’s Mill Elementary schools.
ATEC students designed the program for this event.
