Choral and Dance Students Chat Virtually with Broadway's Frozen Cast Members

Our choral and dance students may not have been able to spend their spring break in NYC as originally planned, but that didn't stop them from chatting with some of the current stars of Broadway. The students took part in their very own virtual talkback with the associate conductor of Frozen and seven of the cast members who pay Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, Hans, Weselton, Oaken and the dance captain. For nearly 90 minutes, the cast members spoke with our students and gave them some great tips about performing and life!

NCEA Art Competition “My Chicago”

This spring, the Archdiocese of Chicago hosted the 2019 NCEA convention at McCormick Place in Chicago. As a part of the celebration, student artwork from across the Archdiocese was featured during the convention; only 50 pieces were selected and displayed as part of the competition. One of the 50 selected pieces was created by Rebecca Unze, a junior at Carmel Catholic High School. The theme for the art competition was “My Chicago” and young artists were encouraged to express their love for and experiences of the city.

Congressional Art Competition 2019

Every spring in April, the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor a nation-wide high school arts competition called An Artistic Discovery. This art contest gives talented young artists the opportunity to be recognized by the nation as well as in their Congressional District. For each competition, the Congressional District brainstorms and determines a theme for the contest. The 2019 contest theme for District 10th, which was determined by Congressman Brad Schneider, was ‘Character’; artists were encouraged to interpret the theme however they wished.
