The HMS Academy of the Performing Arts hosted its first guest speaker on Monday, December 10th. Berlando Drake, singer and actress, known for her performances with Ray Charles and on Broadway’s Baby, It’s You, spoke with students about her early musical experiences and musical influences, decisions that have led to her current performing opportunities, and overall career readiness.  Students enjoyed a duo performance of Ms. Drake and HMS Band Director and Academy Dean, Mr. Yaremko, and took part in a question and answer session with Ms. Drake, where she discussed the process of getting an agent and auditioning for Broadway shows.   

On Monday December the 10th Holdrum’s Academy of Written and Visual Arts students were inspired and educated by a special guest speaker. Ms. Angela Rossi joined the group to discuss and demonstrate her experiences in the creation of an Art portfolio. The students greatly appreciated her presentation and discussion of both High School Art portfolio as well as collegiate work. The Academy of the Written and Visual Arts students were fascinated and inspired. Many of whom lingered around to ask questions beyond our time limitations. They were filled with helpful experiences, useful knowledge and motivational artistic achievements.
