Over 80 Nesin Cultural Arts (NCA) students will celebrate the coming of winter and the holidays through an integrated arts production entitled, “Winter Solstice Revels.” The performance is Saturday, December 17, 2016 at 3:30 pm at the Eugene D. Nesin Theatre for the Performing Arts, 22 St. John Street, Monticello. Students will present a short play with music from NCA Children’s Choruses under the direction of Amy Phillips and accompanied by Jessica Nesin and Aspiring Young Musicians who study with Resident Faculty: Andrew Trombley, Akiko Hosoi, Jessica Nesin, David Chidsey and Trombley Music Studio. There will also be dance performances by NCA dance students under the direction of Jennifer VanEtten and art by NCA Visual Artists who participated in the Visual Art Classes under the direction of Laurie Kilgore. The Revels will end across the street at St John’s Episcopal Church where Visual Arts students will present an art show and NCA will host a bake sale. Tickets are $5.00 for adults and free for students with an ID. They may be purchased online or at the door.
