Spring Coffee House Exhibits a Variety of Performances

On Friday, April 14th in the Kraft Theater, Belmont Hill hosted its Spring Coffee House. The show featured many student and faculty performances under the dazzling color-changing lights and smoke effects of the theater. There were 18 separate performances ranging from instrumental groups to vocals to electronic Garageband performances. Some notable performances included the Middle School Rock Band performing two songs, Yellow by Coldplay and Valerie by The Zutons. The Upper School Rock Band also performed a song, Ragoo by Kings Of Leon. Seniors made up a lot of the show, with Will Kelly, Cam Connell, Dave LoGrasso, Leo Montoya, Sam Atalla, and Riley Goodman all performing throughout the night. There were also classical performances on the piano such as Adrian Tan’s performance of La Campanella, a very difficult piece full of action. Sam Atalla also played a traditional organ Tocatta by Bach on the piano. Lastly, Ryan Chang-Wu performed a portion of a concerto on his violin. Numerous faculty members also made appearances on the stage. Mr. Schneider sang a song that he had last sung at his wedding with his guitar. Mr. DiResta sang an all-time classic in Take Me Home, Country Roads. Mr. George utilized his GarageBand expertise to back him up while he performed Enjoy The Silence on the keyboard, a song that was popular when he was a senior in high school. The Spring Coffee House was magnificent and would not have been possible without the organization of the faculty in the Music Department.
