Two (RFHRHS) teachers have found a way to combine music and art in the form of a multimedia performance.
Kate Okeson, Art teacher at RFHRHS, and Bill Grillo, RFHRHS Instrumental music teacher, have spent the 2011-2012 school year working on an opportunity for students to explore interdisciplinary artworks. By utilizing both digital and analog technologies, students have used programs like Logic, Pro Tools, iMovie, visual programs of the Adobe Creative Suite, digital audio and video peripherals, and of course, their imaginations, to create a special joint multimedia presentation.
“This project has been about the experience of possibilities. Our students are demonstrating what happens when traditional boundaries between artistic disciplines are ignored and burgeoning technologies unite them in creative outcomes,” said Grillo in a press release about the upcoming performance.
The performance, titled ‘Paper & Tape’ will feature works by RFH Art and Music students: Kate Sherman, Charlotte Nagy, Andy Waldron, David Chapmin, Glen Wise, Elena Roig, Maris Krauss, Jack Lawler, Mike Nociolo, Anna Marchese, and Emily MacCloud.
The performance is open to the public and is scheduled for Thursday, May 3 at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. A panel discussion covering their individual goals and processes will follow.
