Algonquin Arts Videos: Student concerts, variety show, and poetry readings

by beth on April 15, 2020

Algonquin’s choral groups were scheduled to hold their spring concert last night. Obviously, they weren’t able to do that. But the school’s calendar listing is prompting me to think about all of the school concerts that normally take place in the spring. For those of you missing the music, I’m sharing the videos of concerts held earlier this year. 

In addition, I threw in other videos of Algonquin performances – the annual variety show and Poetry-Out-Loud events.

ARHS Jazz I & II at MAJE Jazz Festival

Two days before our district’s schools closed, Algonquin hosted the Central II region’s regional high school festival by the Massachusetts Association for Jazz Education. Groups played to an empty auditorium. Jazz I earned a gold medal and Jazz II silver. (Note: Northborough Cable also posted other schools’ performances. You can see those here.)

Poetry Out Loud school finals

This winter, Algonquin held its annual poetry reading competition, as part of the statewide competition. In February, the school’s finalists competed for the right to move on to the regional competition. (Worth noting — The winner, Southborough’s Joseph Zhang, moved on to the regional competition and ultimately to the state competition for the 3rd year running.) This video is highlights from the finals compiled by ARHS Harbinger’s A&E Editor
