Academy students exhibit their talents

November 20, 2006

"Autumn" was the theme for Broadfording Christian Academy's November Performance Gallery, and that included several pumpkin pie-eating contests. Four age levels participated in contests over the course of the evening, with Rob Culler, the high school Bible teacher, joining in on the secondary level contest.

The performance galleries are an opportunity for students to showcase their talents and for families to enjoy a night out together. The Nov. 3 gallery began with eighth-grader Kelli Crider singing "Do You See Jesus in Me?" followed by a middle school drama skit titled "Let Your Light Shine" (Kelsey Burkhardt, Kelli Crider, Chelsea Foltz, and Kristin Grimm).

Sixth-grader Justin Haldeman then played "Be Our Guest" on the piano, and third-grader Seth Funk read the poem "The Pumpkin." Fifth-grader Haley Gray sang "Thank You, Lord" and fifth-grader Tiago DeSouza played "Scherzo" on the piano.

The elementary drama club (Madison Bernier, Adam Brown, Tiffany Midkiff, Melissa Phillips and Taylor Riggs) recited Psalm 135, followed by the High School Ladies Trio (Rachel Cradduck, Abigail England and Emma Stahl) singing "All That I Need." Trumpet player Andrew Wyand performed "For the Beauty of the Earth" and seventh-grader Ashley Burkett performed a Bible presentation titled "Pumpkin Carving."

Pianist Kyle Martin played "The Great Smokey Mountain" and the Elementary Interpretive Music Club (Haley Gray, Jessica Long, Megan Pryor, Emily Pryor and Kierra White) performed to the song "Thank You." Ninth-grader Sara Jo Wright closed the gallery with the vocal solo "Still the Cross."

An art exhibit also was on display during the gallery, featuring works by Michael Hogan, Maggie Miller, Seth Funk, Hayley Widmyer, Brandon Kline, Kim Colbert, Lynn Economos, Brian Kindle, Kim Rose, Meagan Taylor, Charlotte Worsford, Rachel Cradduck, Kevin Haldeman, Casslyn Miller, Jordan Smith and Joel Yount.

The monthly performance galleries are organized by Pam Smith and the music, art, and drama departments at BCA.
