FALL RIVER, Mass. — With the success of last year’s first-time collaboration, the six Catholic schools in the city of Fall River are joining together again this year to host a one-evening presentation to showcase the artistic and musical talents of their students.
The Catholic Schools of Fall River Fine Arts Night will take place March 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Children’s Museum, 441 North Main Street in Fall River.
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: 6:10 p.m., St. Michael School; 6:25 p.m., Holy Trinity; 6:40 p.m., Holy Name; 7:00 p.m., Espirito Santo; 7:15 p.m., St. Stanislaus; and 7:30 p.m., Bishop Connolly High School.
According to St. Stanislaus School Principal Jean Willis, who is among planners for the evening, there was a very positive response to last year’s first-time combined Fine Arts Night for Catholic schools in Fall River.
“We were so pleased with the turnout for the Fine Arts showcase last year, and we are looking forward to offering it again,” she said.
“The Fine Arts Night is a wonderful opportunity for the city’s Catholic schools to work together to display the talents and gifts of our students to a wider segment of the community, and the Children’s Museum is a great venue for it.”
