The NWSA high school student dancers will offer a work by Robert Battle, Artistic Director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Company and NWSA dance alumnus, entitled Boxed – a dance that explores the theme of confinement and freedom. The high school music theater students will transport the audience to the vibrant community of Washington Heights with flavorful excerpts from the Tony-Award winning Broadway musical In the Heights, while the college music theater students present an excerpt of the popular Broadway musical Big Fish. Led by Maestro Alfred Gershfeld, the NWSA Symphony Orchestra will showcase the high school and college music students while the Jazz Ensemble, directed by Jim Gasior, will enthuse the hall with the rousing sounds of jazz.
