Performing Arts Students Showcased Near and Far

2019 is beginning in a big way for students in performing arts.

Six students - Logan Brodnick ‘19 (baritone saxophone), Anna Mussin Phillips ‘21 (flute), John Muhl ‘20 (tuba), Will Marshall ‘19 (horn), Libby Blackshire ‘20 (trumpet), and Natalie Mussin Phillips ‘21 (percussion) were selected to participate in the Tri-State Band Symposium at Northern Kentucky University January 18 and 19. Students from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio who were selected are “the Tri-State’s finest wind and percussion players,” according to NKU. Students will participate in a clinic and perform in the Tri-State Honor Band.

Performing arts students will showcase their talent on Sunday, February 10 during the school’s Winter Recital. Both instrumental and vocal performances will take place at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Students in CJ’s a cappella groups - Phoenix and Vega - also have exciting events happening in the new year. On February 22, both groups will compete the in the International Championship of High School A Cappella quarterfinals at Centerville High School. Vega placed first and Phoenix placed third in that same competition last year.

Additionally, both Vega and Phoenix are featured on the BOHSA 2019: Best of High School a Cappella soundtrack. Vega performs Walk on Water and Phoenix performs How Long. The soundtrack can be heard here

Save the Date!

CJ's spring musical, Cinderella, takes the stage Friday, March 8 (7 p.m.) and Saturday, March 9 (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.) As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.

Tickets are $10. There will be special opportunities for elementary students for the March 9 matinee. Additional details will be announced on cjeagles.org closer to the performance date.
