An abundance of music has echoed throughout the School this November. From singing in Belmont Chapel, to the annual Fall Showcase in the Putnam Family Arts Center, and then a rock band performance at all-school meeting in the Center, November has experienced an outburst of sweet sounds on campus.
On Monday, November 18, the St. Mark's choir, under the direction of Music Director and Arts Department chair James Wallace, performed T. Tertius Noble's Magnificat at an evening service in Belmont Chapel honoring St. Mark's veterans. At that same service, alumnus and school historian Nick Noble '76 led the entire St. Mark's community in singing Tommy Sands' "Daughters and Sons."
On Tuesday evening, November 19, the annual Fall Student Showcase took place on the stage of the Putnam Family Arts Center's Class of 1945 Hall. Performers included Maeve Ahern '20 and Will Bundy '20 (piano/vocals), Galen Deane '22 (alto saxophone), Louise He '23 (vocal), Brillon Joseph '21 (piano), Martin Ma '23 (piano), Bella Murray '23 (piano), Padma Mynampaty '22 (guitar/voca)l, Joseph Solomon '22 (guitar/vocal), Lora Xie '20 (guzheng), Steven Yang '23 (violin), Richard Zhang '21 (violin), and Taylor Zhou '23 (piano),
The following morning at all-school meeting, a student band performed the Jimi Hendrix classic "Purple Haze" (pictured above). Plenty of music, then, to fill the month of November at St. Mark's with Thanksgiving break just ahead.
