Encinitas, CA, June 07, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Grauer School students engaged in the culmination of a year’s work with a talented mixture of art, music, film, photography and camaraderie at the 6th annual GrauerPalooza event held at the Grauer School campus on Saturday, May 22, 2010. The student-led performances included small ensembles comprised of instrumentalists and vocalists from all classes, where collaborations included the majority of students enrolled in the school. The art show included a half-hour production of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, a trailer of a student-produced film, photography and art illustrations and works in oil. Performances were held in the Great Room and on the Carr Family Pavilion followed by a barbeque on the green.
GrauerPalooza was presented at the tail end of the Grauer School Musical Expedition that took students the week prior on a musical journey up the California coast from San Diego to Santa Cruz, Big Sur and culminating in meetings with music executives in L.A. Grauer School Director of Visual and Performing Arts/Music, Isaac Langen explained, “What amazes me about GrauerPalooza is that it is entirely student-driven --- students come to me with songs they want to learn throughout the year and this is their opportunity to engage other students to accompany them. They learn from each other and in most cases, this will be their first opportunity to perform in public. Our recent Musical Expedition gave them a chance to hone their skills in intimate club settings along the coast before performing at GrauerPalooza in front of parents, faculty and their peers.”
Art Teacher Christy Goodson helped the students prepare for their exhibitions and added, “This is a multi-faceted artistic experience for the students who have worked hard to select their top works to highlight at this year’s event. It’s gratifying to see how much the students have advanced this year --- the Visual and Performing Arts Department will be showcasing some of the top music performances, art and photography at local venues.”
The Grauer School is located at 1500 South El Camino Real in Encinitas and scholarships are available. The Grauer School encourages all students to participate in the artistic and performing arts in an intimate, small private school setting.
