Art, music, theatre, and food were celebrated in style on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon (April 12) at Jesuit High School during the annual Celebration of the Arts.
Hundreds of guests enjoyed the entertainment in the student commons. Christian Pena ’15 beautifully sang “Johanna” from the musical “Sweeney Todd,” followed by an engaging performance from Lexi Nieto of the Academy of the Holy Names.
Music director Nina Wegmann then led Jesuit's musicians through nine pieces, beginning with “Jurassic Park” and closing with "Hot, Hot, Hot," and featuring an array of instruments.
A Taste of Jesuit provided delicious fare for the event, with numerous food tents serving in the commons. Jesuit thanks the vendors who supported Celebration of the Arts 2015: Beef O’Brady’s, Byblos Café, Catering by the Family, Florida Fresh Vending, Gino’s, Little Greek, PDQ, and Tastes of Tampa Bay, along with the Jesuit Mothers’ Club and Jesuit Dads’ Club.
Jesuit artists, under the direction of Kevin Ball '03, once again created a phenomenal display of talent in the Multi-Purpose Room for the Juried Art Show. Robert Wegmann and Emiliano Settecasi ’13 served as judges, and among the winners were Noah Persha ’15 (first place, AP Portfolio), Cole Fisher ’15 (second place, AP Portfolio), Andrew Deming ’15 (Best in Show), and Dylan Hawkins ’15 (Honorable Mention, Best in Show).
