Glenholme’s eighth annual Parents’ Weekend commenced with another wonderful student performance in The Center for the Arts. Entitled “Any Dream Will Do,” the show featured an assortment of impassioned songs, an upbeat dance, and amusing dialogue – all of which were completely captivating.
The Men’s Singing Group began the show with a powerful rendition of the national anthem. Then the five-member dance team performed their way from the aisles to the stage as Rhianna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” filled the theatre and an exciting light show whirled about the stage.
Several solos and duets showcased student talent throughout the performance. One highlight was Aaron’s performance of a song he wrote about change entitled, “Cycles.” Aaron spoke passionately when he noted that his first year at Glenholme has helped him transform into a better person and his soulful vocals and natural talent on the guitar melded superbly for the delivery of his inspirational song.
Other highlights included solos by Matt and Ian as part of the full chorus’ entertaining rendition of “Circle of Life,” a dynamic delivery of “December 1963” by Glenholme Idol, Griffin, and the duet, “Mama’s Song” by Ashlyn and Jake.
Other touching moments included the Chorale’s beautiful rendition of the challenging “Water Night” by Octavio Paz and the Men’s Singing Group’s performances of the “Dynamite” and “Hey There Delilah.”
As the traditional kick-off to Parents’ Weekend, this performance was definitely more than just any dream!
