Principia Arts On Tour Blew us Away!

The Principia Jazz band blew us all away today at the Dallas Arboretum along the the A Capella Choir.  The first response to their smooth and jazzy beat was – Are these kids really just in high school?

Their talents are impressive.  Especially given the fact that their director , Martha Stitzel, gave them a 1-2-3 to start them off then just walked away as the kids took the music and ran with it.  She returned once or twice during the concert but more often a student member of the band gave the direction to the rest of the group.  For Stitzel to have that much confidence in the talent and cohesiveness of the group, shows the work, practice and polish that has gone on in her classroom.  But the looks on each students’ faces, they were truly enjoying their performance as much as the audience did.

The A capella group who joined the stage was equally as talented in their rendition of “Take Me Home” by Kevin Olusola, Kirsten Maldonado, and Audra Mae.

Principia A Capella Group Greta Johnson, Madison Ouellette, and Amanda Brenenman
Principia College A Capella
Principia College A capella Dr Mok, Parker Tibbetts and Denny Veidelis

They also sang:  Route 66, In the still of the Night and The Lord Bless you and Keep You.

Liam Frager and Greta Johnson Tap dancing at the Tour of Arts

 

The surprise of the show was the tap dancing duo of Greta Johnson and Liam Frager. When was the last time you saw tap dancing to a Jazz band that really worked?  Today we did!
