The community can tune in to Hills’ talent night, available for streaming on March 24.

Talent Night has always been a special tradition at Hills. It allows students to share their gifts with the community. In past years, the acts have included visual art, vocal performance, poetry recitation, dance, and much more. This year’s showcase will look a little different in the aspect that, like many other school events, it will not be live. Students and community members alike will have the opportunity to view it from the comfort of their own homes. 

It’s easier to perform virtually with just a few of us. GarageBand allows us to have clear, separate tracks, and we can use multiple instruments.”

— Ari Sharon, talent show performer

Choral director Margarita Elkin commented, saying, “[though] the key component of live performance is missing,” she is “optimistic about the number of submissions.” Though the number may not reach quite as high as previous years, Elkin is excited to reveal various creative acts, including a mysterious secret adult performer.

Hills students Ari Sharon, Hadyn Hopper, and Jocelyn Adereth recently formed a band called Band? and are excited to debut their skills to the community. Sharon, percussionist for Band? commented on the advantages of virtual production, saying, “It’s easier to perform virtually with just a few of us. GarageBand allows us to have clear, separate tracks, and we can use multiple instruments.”

And though the talent night may not be outdoors, Elkin has shared that she has complete confidence in the performers, especially her vocal students, pointing out that the Tri-M Induction Ceremony and Concert was virtual and last year’s Chamber Concert was as well. Hence, the students have more experience recording for video. 

For those looking forward to live performances in the future, the upcoming spring concert will be an outdoor event. But for now, the community can tune in to Hills’ talent night, available for streaming on March 24.
