Festival of the Arts
Saturday, May 14, 2022
Bishop O'Connell High School was pleased to bring back this hallmark celebration of the Arts, showcasing our student's talents in both visual and performing arts. This year's event featured a beautiful art gallery in the wide open atrium space. which featured exhibitions of student art and photography, including sculpture and textiles. The halls, courtyard and auditorium rang with performances from the orchestra, band and theatre ensembles. Even the library turned into into a funky coffee lounge, with entertainment from individual and small group musicians and contributors to the Largesse literary magazine. Families wandered the halls, many wearing the "Festival of the Arts"-branded t-shirts on sale that day, enjoying delicious home-made treats provided by the Baking for a Cause Club, as well as burgers and hot dogs grilled up by the BBQ Club, representing the culinary arts. It was a triumphant return to an-person celebration of all the arts!
