Though the end of the school year hasn't looked at all like we imagined, the Fine Arts Boosters continue to meet to wrap up this year and plan for the 2020-2021 school year. We have four open board positions for next year: Treasurer, Membership Chair, Communications Chair and Corporate Sponsorship Chair. If you're interested in learning more about FAB or getting involved as a board member please reach out to one of the current board members.
The Green Hope High School Fine Arts Boosters organization (FAB) wishes to present three GHHS college-bound seniors with $1,000 scholarships. The purpose of this award is to recognize graduates who have been active in the programs supported by FAB—Chorus, Dance, Drama & Technical Theatre, Guitar, Orchestra, and Visual Art--while demonstrating good character, leadership qualities, and scholarship during their tenures at GHHS. Applicants will be evaluated by a committee comprised of three adults familiar with the arts.
Applications are due May 15, 2020.
Families, Friends, and Community,
We regret to inform you that we need to cancel our performances for Saturday, March 14.
We are working with Concord Theatricals on producing a video of tonight's performance that can be distributed on a private server for Saturday ticket goers. Tonight is our final performance of the Wizard of Oz and tickets are still available at the door for tonight. Please consider making your Saturday ticket purchase price a donation to support our arts programs here at Green Hope. Refunds can be requested through 11:59 pm on Tuesday, March 17th.

We are very excited to present our 2020 spring musical, The Wizard of Oz, for you this weekend!
Families, based on guidance from state health officials, events that attract crowds should be avoided by those aged 65 and older, people with underlying medical conditions and those who are ill.
In addition, we have included the following steps to maximize safety:
For the second year, the GHHS Fine Arts Boosters are raffling off several themed baskets in conjunction with the Spring Musical The Wizard of Oz!
Raffle tickets can be purchased online now through Thursday, March 12th at noon. The tickets are $1 each, or 6 for $5, or 25 for $20. The baskets will be on display in the commons during the Thursday and Friday evening performances of the Wizard of Oz and you'll be able to buy tickets in person before the show and during intermission. Fan favorites "Out-to-Lunch", "Chocolate Lover's" and "Mixed Greens" are back again this year. The winners will be announced in the auditorium immediately following the Friday evening show, and you do not need to be present to win. Good luck!
This year, the Drama Department presents the spring musical The Wizard of Oz! As always, the production is a collaborative effort between all of our fine arts departments: Drama, Chorus, Orchestra and Visual Arts. Tickets for all four performances go on sale online this Friday, February 14th. See the TICKETS link in the top menu of the website for the link.
On separate weekends in mid-November several of our students participated in the NC Honors Chorus and NC Honors Orchestra in Winston Salem, NC.
During the weekend of November 8-10, nine orchestra students participated in the NC Honors Orchestra: Stephan Chang, Jayon Felizarta, Tomer Goldhagen, Sharayu Gugnani, Raphael Lee, Polyna Uzun, Evan Villani, Kai-En Wang and Jack Zhang.
Four Green Hope choral students, Jeongbin Pak, Austin Harger, Gabriela Bustamante and Luna Hou, were among the 180 students who were selected for NC Honors Chorus via an audition process that began in September. They worked with other selected students from across the state and distinguished conductor Dr. Daniel Bara from the University of Georgia.
Both events were very successful for our students. Gabriela's score earned her 5th place among all sopranos in the state, while orchestra member Jayon earned Concertmaster, 1st chair in the state of NC! Additionally, this marked the second year that Austin and Luna have been selected to participate in NC Honors Chorus. Congratulations to all!
THANK YOU to each of our partners for your generous support of the Fine Arts at GH.
