Dancers and Musicians Delight the Board
Grier dancers, musicians, and vocalists gave special performances for the visiting members of Grier's Board of Trustees who were on Grier campus for their fall meeting. Visiting board members watched Grier's Pre-Professional dancers perform a two-part piece choreographed by guest artist Melissa Rector. The dancers had only begun working on the piece on Monday, so to perform it so beautifully was a feat that wowed everyone. Elements of the choreography included an interpretive spelling of their own names by the dancers, which they demonstrated to the trustees. The guests then proceeded to the Instrumental Music building to listen to two pieces by the orchestra, including one that included elements found in Western film soundtracks. The performances concluded with vocalists from select choir performing Kyrie and a group of Musical Theatre performers perfomring "Brand New You" from the musical 13. Grier has more performances in store for Parents' Weekend!
