Sweetheart Serenade, a show in the Graves County Schools’ Season Event Series, is scheduled for Saturday, February 16, at 7 pm. It will include performances from Graves High’s various bands, choirs, orchestras and drama, as well as light refreshments. In keeping with the Valentine’s season, the music features love songs.
If you are a Season Event Series ticket holder your ticket will be honored. Remaining seats will be general admission and may be purchased at the door, beginning at 6:30 pm. All this love will take place at the Graves County Schools Performing Arts Center (PAC), located at the corner of Graves High nearest the intersection of the Purchase Parkway and Kentucky Highway 121.
PAC Director Casey Jones is excited to be showcasing this event. “This is our second Sweetheart Serenade,” said Jones. “Like many of our regular patrons, I love shows where we feature all of our performing arts programs: band, choir, orchestra, and drama. Our gallery will also feature themed artwork from our Graves County High School art students.”
Romantic Music - Dramatic Stories
The GCHS Chamber Orchestra will be showcasing poignant love songs from stage, screen, and today's top performers. Irving Berlin, Elvis and Ed Sheeran are just a few of the composers whose music will be performed by these great musicians who are western Kentucky's only national touring high school orchestra.
The Drama department will be performing pieces illustrating love throughout the years. From The Dating Game to The Bachelor, the drama students will attempt to answer the age old question - “how do I find that special someone?"
Work from Art 1 and Art 2 Students dominates the gallery for this event. Art 1 students worked with 2D mediums to create graffiti designs, while Art 2 students have large painted portraits, ceramic monsters, and ceramic spirit animals.
The evening will begin in the PAC theater with music from the orchestra and choir, then attendees will move to the GCHS commons area, where the jazz band and drama students will perform.
