Music and art will unite as hundreds of students, along with art and music teachers, gather for an annual tradition. The Richmond County Schools Arts Alive! Celebration will be held March 6 and March 7 at the Cole Auditorium in Hamlet.
Since the program’s inception in 2001, hundreds of student artists and performers have wowed Richmond County parents, community members and educators with their ability to showcase excellence in music and art. Arts Alive! will once again host two days of performances art exhibits.
Band performances will begin at 7 p.m. on March 6. Choral groups will perform starting at 7 p.m. on March 7. Students will perform in all county groups, rather than as individual schools.
Visual Art displays open at 3 p.m. on March 6 and will remain displayed until after the Friday concert.
Art and music teachers encourage parents and community members to come out and view the hard work and creativity students have worked to demonstrate in their classrooms.
Arts Alive! celebrates National Youth Art Month, and National Music in Our Schools Month which are held every March. It is important that families and their students remain excited about the arts, and the Arts Alive program has become a staple in generating that enthusiasm every year.
