NCSSM Fine Arts Series Kicks Off!
On Friday, October 23, 2009, the NCSSM Fine Arts Series kicked off for the current year. The evening was a great success. It started off with the opening of the Olivia Gatewood Art Exhibit in the NCSSM ETC. This exhibit is a magnificent collection of art by this North Carolina artist. She generously donated one of her images to serve as the "cover" for all 2009-2010 Fine Arts Series Events. We had a wonderful crowd for this and it was enjoyed by all. The exhibit will remain on display in the ETC through December 18. As part of the opening, the NCSSM Flute Quartet performed and they were magnificent.
This was also a great opprtunity for the public to see the wonderful exhibit of Optical Toys at NCSSM. You can learn more about this exhibit at the exhibit website.
Following the opening, the NCSSM Drama Board presented its first production of the year, Cyrano de Bergerac. The show was magnificent and the audience loved the production. Director Adam Sampieri had nothing but great things to say about the ensemble and their fabulous work in preparing for the show. Cyrano will run for 2 more shows. Tonight at 7:00 and Sunday, 10/25 at 3:00 PM.
The series could not have gotten off to a better start and we are so pleased that last nights events were so well attended. We hope to see one of you at future NCSSM Fine Arts Series Events!!
