When the concerts are over and the curtain closes, the show goes on the road to Teen Arts to perform and see other schools’ productions. Friday, May 18th, was the Teen Arts Festival at Bergen Community College. The Choir, with assistance from Mr. McCann, performed “Viva La Musica” by David Brunner, “Run to You” by Pentatonix, “Cantar” by Jay Althouse, “Keep Your Lamps” by Victor Johnson, and “Bring Me Little Water Sylvie” (Folk Song).

Lodi High School’s Drama Club put on four performances at Teen Arts: small and large theater, and small and large dances. For large group dance, the drama club displayed an emotional performance with a great message of “This is Me,” from The Greatest Showman. Fabio Paulino and Arianna Mantilla acted out a scene for small theater. The small group dance, which consisted of three girls and three boys, performed to a remixed version of “It” by Janet Jackson. To end of the day, the drama club performed a mashup of “96,000” and “In the Heights” from their spring show, In the Heights.

Even though there were many performances at Teen Arts, there was also art displayed in an exhibit. A few pieces from the Honors Art 1 and AP Studio Art classes were shown. Two of them were even recognized by Bergen County. Shivangi Mistry’s artwork was selected for the Bergen County Art Show and will be displayed at the Hackensack Courthouse. A piece by Mikela Lickollari was also recognized and received an honorable mention.

The last performance of the day was Lodi’s own Jazz Band. They performed their three Count Basie songs, “Jive at Five,” “Count Me In,” and “Whirley Bird.” They sounded great and were given outstanding critiques.

Overall, those who attended Teen Arts had the opportunity to meet new people and see their work, while also being able to show off their own art and all of the work they have put into it.

Q: What is your favorite part of school?
A: School offers a lot of opportunities for anybody with any interest. There are so many different clubs; I feel like anyone can do anything and be anything and you can put yourself out there in many ways in school.

Q: What are your hobbies and how did you get into them?
A: Tennis, sleeping, binge watching Youtube and Netflix. One hobby that no one really knows I have is that, recently, I learned how to play ukulele. I got into it because I wanted to pick up an instrument and teach myself something and I thought the ukulele was pretty cool.

Q: What kind of music do you like to listen to?
A: All music. Everyone says that they don’t like country, but there are some country songs that are bops, so I like any kind of music.

Q: What makes you happy?
A: I think seeing other people happy and pleasing other people because I always put myself in someone else’s shoes. So if anybody else is happy because of something I did, then I feel that too.

Q: What is your dream place to visit?

A: I have always wanted to visit Japan, Tokyo specifically, because the culture and people are really cool and interesting to me.

A: I am tired 24/7, but I can usually stay up pretty late so I would say that I am a night person.
