The COFA Showcase last night was really excellent. Even with the weather and venue change, the performances, art, and sharing with our community made for a great evening. I have so much respect for the work and rehearsal that the instructors and students of Dance, Choir, Band, Orchestra, Colorguard, Visual Art and Theatre put in to make our program and school shine. In my position I get to see all of the work that goes on behind the scenes to pull off an event like this and it takes contribuitions both large and small for it all to come together and their were many--so thank you to: Ori Liwanag, Felix, Jaime park, Noah somphone, Allison Louie, Nathan park, Grace park, Faith Uyeno, Riya Bhagat, Payal Vaghashia, Bryant Chung, Julianne Santos, Brian yun Lucas Oune, Natisha Njetu, Caleina Hong, Sophia Wang, Dayoon Lee, Jazelle Gallardo, Noah Ibalo, Event Directors: Jennifer Song and Vanessa Morley. I can't tell you how cool it was to have everything cleaned up in 20 minutes because everyone pitched in. This list is incomplete so I apologize if I left you out. Thank you also to the instructors and our administration--the decorations were the best I've seen at an Open House. I know a lot of new recruits will come out of this event.
