FALL RIVER — In what will be a first-time collaboration of its type, the six Catholic schools in the city of Fall River are joining together to host a one-evening presentation to showcase the artistic and musical talents of their students.
The event, entitled The Fall River Catholic Schools Fine Arts Night, will be held on Tuesday, March 18, from 6 to 9 p.m., at the Children’s Museum of Greater Fall River, located at 1441 North Main St. in the city.
The Fine Arts Night will feature art from students of all ages in a variety of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, and weaving as well as musical performances by choral groups from each school.
The artistic pieces will be on display throughout the evening and the individual schools will present musical performances according to the following schedule: 6 p.m. St. Michael School; 6:30 p.m., Espirito Santo; 7 p.m., St. Stanislaus; 7:30 p.m., Holy Trinity; 8 p.m., Holy Name; and 8:30 p.m., Bishop Connolly High.
St. Stanislaus School Principal Jean Willis, who is among planners for the evening, said that the combined fine arts showcase “makes for a wonderful opportunity for the city’s Catholic schools to collaborate and to display the talents and gifts of our students to a wider segment of the community.”
She added that the planning group is very pleased to be able to partner with the Children’s Museum for the event.
“It is a great venue in the city for this showcase,” she said.
There is no charge to attend and all are welcomed.
