Sidney Kiner and Mason Finlay in Letters to Sala performance
Last month the curtain closed on the fall play, Letters to Sala, which featured more than 30 Upper School students as cast and crew members and officially launched a busy 2022-23 fine arts performance schedule. If you wander around Roddy or the Music Building at any hour during the school day and into late afternoon, you will see students in the Upper School and Middle School dance, choir, band, and orchestra programs rehearsing and fine-tuning their performance skills for a busy holiday and winter season – you won’t want to miss these upcoming events!

Tuesday, Dec. 6, 7 p.m. - Middle School and Upper School Band and Orchestra Winter Concert (Alumni Chapel)
Wednesday, Dec. 7, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. - One Acts (Roddy Theater)

ooking ahead to January and February 2023, the Middle School students will present Alice @ Wonderland Jan. 19-21 (by Jonathan Yukich/produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc., Englewood Colo.) followed by the annual Verve’ Dance February 1-4.
Additionally, our incredibly talented students enrolled in visual arts classes are seeing some of their work spotlighted in various campus locations. With the expertise of art instructor Greta Mountain and the support of the Parent Alliance, student-created art is being curated for installations throughout campus, including a new display of current Middle School art in Barks Hall and ongoing displays in the Roddy Theater lobby. We will be sharing more about student art displays and exhibits in a future issue of Headlines from the Hill.
"Our Fine Arts students are already busy sharing their talents on campus and throughout the larger Chattanooga community," said Fine Arts Department Chair and Choir Director Vincent Oakes. "Given the challenging circumstances of the past two and a half years, it is wonderful to have performances, shows, art instillations and other opportunities to showcase the talented work of our students under the guidance of the amazing teaching artists here at Baylor."
