HOUSTON – Dec. 13, 2019 – Student musicians, dancers, actors and visual artists from across Spring ISD will be taking to the stage for an evening of collaborative performances beginning at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16 at the Westfield High School Performing Arts Center, 16713 Ella Blvd., Houston, 77090. The event is free and all are invited.
The Greatest Winter Show 2019 will feature collaborative performances by middle school and high school band, choir, dance and theater students from throughout the district. The first districtwide collaborative performances were held last year and brought together students from across Spring ISD for a series of special performances to help celebrate the holidays and highlight the district’s arts integration initiative. Unlike last year’s winter show – when acts were spread across two evenings – all performances and participating students will be featured on a single night so that audience members can enjoy the full production.
“This is our second winter collaborative event, and we’re thrilled to continue building on the tradition we started last year,” said Director of Performing and Visual Arts Dr. Joe Clark. “It’s a great way to celebrate how arts integration is impacting students across Spring ISD, to shine a light on our extremely talented students, and just to bring our community of family, friends, students and supporters together for a great evening of performances guaranteed to get everyone into the holiday spirit.”
In addition to the choir, band, dance and theater performances, the event will also include a special presentation honoring the top 10 students in this year’s Superintendent’s Holiday Card Contest. This year’s contest drew on the creativity of more than 15,000 Spring ISD elementary students, and highlighted the top student card designs from across the district.
“It takes a lot of commitment from our teachers and students to put together an event on this scale, but it’s worth it,” said Clark, “It inspires our scholars to reach new creative heights, and it brings a lot of joy to our families and members of the community. And we continue to be thankful for our school board’s vision to reach every student in Spring ISD through arts integration. That support really makes events like this possible.”
