2020 Forever Concert

2020 Spring Forever Concert

Every year the Falmouth Academy Arts Department organizes an end-of-the-year art show and spring concert to showcase student work from the art and music electives. This year, the department has adapted both the art show and concert to an online format. We invite you to enjoy the 2020 Forever Concert captured for posterity on video with the help of a cadre of technicians and videographers. Special thanks to Ian Good of the New York Philharmonic, Charles Jodoin, James Goldbach, Marcus Greco, Martha Borden, and George Scharr for their technical support; and to  Paul Weller, Norma Stiner and George Scharr for providing musical accompaniment; and to all the performers and music teachers for this lovely performance. Enjoy!

Please note: Due to technical difficulty, not all the videos are available. They will be included ASAP. Please check back. Thank you.

"This year has taught us that we can stretch and grow in new ways resulting in greater depth and breadth of musical talent. We are grateful for the willingness of our staff and students to continually adapt and grow. A special tip of the hat to Ms. Vickie Vieira who came out of retirement to lead our chorus this year. We wish her well in future endeavors"

Senior Retrospectives and Solos

Senior Solos are typically a highlight of the spring concert and give graduating seniors a chance to share their musical talent by performing a piece of music of their choosing. This year, Cather Zhang went one step further to record herself playing four parts of Mozart's Symphony Number 25, k. 183, the first movement on her flute, and then edit them together to produce this stunning performance. Congratulations, Cather!
