Hillsboro students show off talents

Staff writer

A diverse array of artwork, ranging from pencil drawings, paintings, ceramics, plaques, cardboard box robots, and a wooden Kansas cowtown were viewed by parents, teachers, grandparents, and guests Friday at Hillsboro Middle / High School fine arts festival.

The work included students’ best creations from the current school year.

Artist Kailee Jamieson, ninth grade, clearly found inspiration from many sources. Her drawings are based on dinosaurs, plants, Michelangelo’s David, Indiana Jones, science fiction and adventure movies, and the people around her.

Her younger brother, Cameron, in sixth grade, was inspired by more traditional robots and ceramics.

Friday’s art exhibit in the commons was followed by a concert in the auditorium.

The middle school choir performed “Seize the Day.”

Seventh through 12th grade men sang “Riders in the Sky.”

Seventh through 12th grade women sang “My Favorite Things.”

The sixth grade choir sang “SoftShoe / Charleston” and “Fun Train.”

Sixth grade band students performed “Pictures at an Exhibition: The Great Gate of Kiev,” “Pop Goes the Band,” and “Hunter’s Mountain.”

Seventh through 12th grade band performed “Simple Gifts,” “Danny Boy,” “Music from Pirates of the Caribbean,” and “Music from Les Miserables.”

Spirit-N-Celebration singers performed “Operator,” “The Prayer,” and “Steppin’ Out With My Baby.”

The concert choir performed “Baba Yetu.”
