Education Notebook: Festival of arts to end Tuesday with concert

Thu., Nov. 15, 2012, midnight

The public is invited to the Festival of the Arts concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the INB Performing Arts Center.

The concert comes at the conclusion of a two-day festival for visual and performing arts students from Ferris, Lewis and Clark, North Central, Rogers and Shadle Park high schools.

Students in the honor band will rehearse with Alan Gemberling, a music professor at the University of Idaho. The orchestra will work with Verne Windham, a retired conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. Timothy Fitzpatrick, a music professor at Western Washington University, will lead the choir.

On Tuesday, there will be interactive clinics for visual art students with Erik Brooks, an author and illustrator, and for photography students with photographer Craig Sweat.

Artwork produced by the visual art and photography students at their clinics and completed during subsequent classes will be displayed at the INB during the Spokane Symphony’s education concert on Feb. 24.
