Junior Wins Top Places in International Music Competitions

Ephemera, Sewickley Academy Senior School’s literary and visual art magazine, hosted Ephemera Live on Friday.
Ephemera Live showcases fine art not publishable in the magazine. This year, students and faculty showcased their inimitable talents. Hanna Peacock read a moving poem to start off the night and later artfully played her flute. Morgan Martin sang her own stunning version of “When I Was Your Man.” Joyfully, Mr. Connolly played an original composition on his guitar and treated the audience to his version of “Wagon Wheel.” During intermission, audience members were welcome to view students’ visual art. In a beautiful duet, Natalia Arbelaez Solano sang (in English and then in Spanish!) while Sam Casale played his guitar. Veronica Coleman read a touching poem to end the night. Master of Ceremony and Ephemera club president James Grosz hosted the event. With a chill, coffee-house vibe, Ephemera Live displayed artistic talent that moved administrators, parents, teachers, students, and staff.
