What did you do in the arts this weekend?

Did you participate in the monthly art walk (as either a walker or an artist)? Were you in the audience for a high school musical? Did you, like me, try to catch up on Oscar winners that you hadn’t seen yet? (First thought after finally seeing Argo: Christoph Waltz must have been absolutely amazing in Django to have been deemed more worthy of the Best Supporting Actor award than the hilarious Alan Arkin.) Please join our conversation.

Musicals showcase student talent

By Barb Van Atta

I said it last year; I’ll say it again: From February to May, there are no better places to get the most out of your entertainment buck than the auditoriums of local high schools. Despite budget cutbacks, talented students, dedicated teachers and hard-working volunteers in every district continue to put their hearts into presenting musicals every spring. The 2013 season begins this weekend with Fame at Owego-Apalachin, and continues into spring with offerings both classic (South Pacific) and contemporary (The Wedding Singer).

In 2012, I called around to schools to compile a list of performances. A big shout-out and thank you to Rich Ives of Oweo who did all the legwork this year, put it into this nifty graphic and made it available to BAMirror.
