This year’s theme is “Broadway Through The Ages” and the show will feature an array of favorite songs from old and new Broadway musicals. All net proceeds from the show will benefit ArtsALIVE!, John Jay’s arts booster club made up of parents and students to support, promote and provide funding for enriching activities and programs, visiting artists, class trips and other arts-related activities for the students of the Katonah-Lewisboro School District.

Dear ArtsAlive!
Thank you so much for sponsoring our 2017 trip to Lincoln Center on May, 19th.

Students participated in a a backstage tour, heard an open-rehearsal of the NY Philharmonic featuring Alan Gilbert, and attended an evening performance featuring Wynton Marsalis and the music of Count Basie and Duke Ellington at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Many students commented on how much they learned that day and that it was the best enrichment field trip they had taken all year. Without a doubt, all students had a fantastic time and it was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music!

November 28th, 2016

Grades: 10-12

Simon demonstrated many techniques on the pottery wheel and helped individual students on the pottery wheel. He worked nonstop from 8:15-1:45 with students from Ceramics and Sculpture, ad. ceramics and sculpture, photo, and other art students, with 20-25 students in each class period

Students did not want to leave when the bell rang at the end of the periods. They loved it! Simon was even better than last year.  He made so many forms that just amazed the students.  He was very encouraging to the students on the pottery wheels, working 1:1 with them.

Nearly 55 students in Music History & Theory and Music Technology, traveled to NYC to visit Lincoln Center and all it has to offer. Students participated in a a backstage tour, heard the NY Philharmonic in concert featuring former John Jay Alumnus Carter Brey playing Schumann’s Cello Concerto, and attended an evening performance featuring the music of Louis Armstrong at B.B. Kings.  Lead trumpet player Joey Morant, asked our students to join him onstage to play during the finale; Neal LaPolla, Jack Bandon, Tom Miritello, and Cooper Klares were more than happy to volunteer.  It was supper exciting for all the students to see their peers debut at B. B. Kings!  Overall, it was a fun-filled day celebrating our love of music!

Wilderness workshops with artist Maggie Zander

To the Folks of ArtsAlive!

Thank you for supporting me in bringing more hands-on art and creative expression into my work day. Maggie’s work with the Wilderness students was successful and spilled over into all my 10th grade classes… and will continue to spill over into all my classes to come. This work has already touched hundreds of students.

These images show a taste of the work we did in Wilderness but please stop by the L202 classroom to see more. Thanks to all of you, my teaching is more balanced, profound and fulfilling. You are much appreciated.

Best, Jill
