A great time for music in Havre Public Schools
Last updated 12/26/2014 at 11:42am
This time of the year in Havre Public Schools the sets take center stage.
From the first-graders singing up at the mall to the Hi-Liters touring around the community, Havre Public Schools’ “Tradition of Excellence” in the arts is at its finest.
One of the traditions that highlights student talent is the annual Havre High School Talent Show.
The spectrum of talent on display often ranges from the not so serious to a performance that leaves the audience saying something to the effect of, “Wow. I had no idea (insert student name) could do that.” It really is enjoyable to be surprised each year.
This year the acts included performers playing handmade carrot clarinets, a tribute to an ’80s hit “Eye of the Tiger,” a fantastic solo dance routine, piano playing, mind blowing guitar playing, and other fine performances.
At the start of this year’s talent show, there was a presentation by Partners Advocating for Student Success. The PASS group, led by senior Sarah Manual, put together a video of Havre High students and staff dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,”, nd I thought it was fantastic. It made me laugh and everyone involved did a great job from the shoulder shruggers and head bobbers to those who have the “Moves Like Jagger.”
It was an outstanding lead in to the rest of the performances. Way to go PASS and Havre High School.
