In Music
Eight ASH students from Lower and Middle School participated in the Romantic Contemporary Piano Festival organized by New Orleans Music Teacher Association. The festival was held at the University of New Orleans. The girls, instructed by ASH music teacher Maja Bahat , worked very hard to prepare their pieces and performed in front of two judges. The students receiving the highest scores were selected to perform the next day in front of an audience.
