Fine Arts Winter Fête
Fête is a word from Old French meaning celebration or feast. Great Hearts Irving Upper School is delighted to announce our first annual Fine Arts Winter Fête—a celebration of the great work our students have produced in their Drama, Art, and Music courses.
We hope you will be able to join us for one or more of these celebrations to feast your eyes and ears on the many accomplishments of our Upper School Students!
Senior Drama Performances of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Great Hearts Irving Athena Stage (in the gym)
If music be the food of love, play on! Join us for shipwrecks, disguises, mistaken identities, love triangles, practical jokes gone too far, ridiculousness for the sake of love, pirates, and plenty of other shenanigans!
Tickets will be sold in advance online, and at the theater door starting 30 minutes prior to each performance. Tickets are $5.
Upper School Art Show Open House & Choral Concert
Feast your eyes and ears on our scholars’ studio art and choral expertise from the first semester. As a particular treat, our extracurricular student & faculty choir will also be performing.
Details for Performing Scholars
Students arrive at 5:00 pm wearing their concert black, with their music binders and a small snack. From 5:00-7:00 pm there will be a dress rehearsal, so the gym is closed to non-performers. The audience can enter the gym at 7:00 pm, with the concert beginning at 7:30 pm.
Concert Black Dress Code
Ladies can either wear a black dress that covers the knee or black pants or skirt (that covers the knee) with a black blouse. All blouses must be of modest neckline and the shoulders need to be covered. If opting for a skirt or dress, opaque, black tights must be worn. Black flats are preferable, as heels can cause fatigue during performances. If black heels are worn, the heel must not be more than one inch.
Gentlemen need to wear black pants, a wrist-length, button up black shirt, black leather belt, black leather shoes, and blak socks. All buttons must be fastened for performances. Solid black tie and sports coat are optional.
No jewelry is allowed for performances, with the exception of ladies’ earrings. Earrings must be in accordance with the Great Hearts dress code.
