Breck Middle School and Upper School Performing Arts Concerts and Performances
The Performing Arts groups have been hard at work creating ways to showcase what they have learned fall semester. We hope that you take time over the Winter Break to watch, listen, and enjoy what the performing arts students have accomplished.
The virtual dance concert is a celebration of the work that we have done this semester in the dance program at Breck. The performances will include pieces from both Middle and Upper School dance classes. Watch our concert by clicking the link below.
Upper School Band: A Charlie Brown Christmas
Band director Charlotte Wheeler and a group of US band students recorded "A Charlie Brown Christmas," with the final cut being released after winter break began. Enjoy!
Virtual Fall Dance Concert
The last live performance by Breck Choirs was at the Blue & Gold Bash, in March of 2020. It was a wonderful experience, but at that time we had no idea we would not be able to sing together for many months! Since then, we have had to dream of a new way to sing and create music. Students have created music videos, composed and recorded songs, written raps, worked on sight singing and recorded solo videos. This has created the opportunity to get to know each choir member as an individual singer. Feedback has been given regarding vocal technique, performance technique and repertoire ideas. More importantly, an environment has been created in which students feel empowered to use their voices and to feel confident in sharing their own son
The Breck 7/8 Tenor Bass Chamber Choir is an auditioned group of singers under the direction of Sharon Mazion. This great group of students shows a commitment to learning, singing, and performing at an advanced level. The energy and enthusiasm they bring to the group makes for a fun vibrant class! We hope you enjoy this sampling of our current work.
Breck Upper School students Joseph Purvis ‘21, Ayres Warren ‘22 and Maddie McDermott ‘22 share their experience interviewing Leslie Redmond, a local community organizer and former President of the Minneapolis NAACP. They also share their excitement for the MLK Symposium and Amplify Our Love with Pie events happening at Breck this upcoming week. Ms. Redmond will be the Upper School keynote speaker for the our 20th annual MLK Symposium.
On Sunday, January 17th, Breck will co-host Sweet Potato Comfort Pie’s seventh annual MLK Holiday event: Amplify Our Love with Pie, to honor the 92nd birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breck student, Kai Miller ‘22, has been working behind the scenes to get ready for the event. The communications team at Breck did a brief interview with Kai to ask about her experience working on the event.
Natalia Rico Hernández, Ed.D., Head of School, updates the Breck community on the School's response to Wednesday's events.
