WATCH: Highlands Hosts Visual and Performing Art Auditions


The Fort Thomas Independent Schools Visual and Performing Arts auditions took place Saturday at Highlands High School in the areas of visual art, vocal music, instrumental music, music composition, drama, and dance.

Students were referred to the program and were sent invitations to participate by appointment in the defined areas.



"Our gifted and talented program, Quest, is available for students who meet eligibility in grades 4-12," said Jamee Flaherty, Assistant Superintendent of Student Services. "Visual and Performing Arts is one of five areas that students can qualify to participate.  The others areas, which are defined by the state, are General Intellectual, Academic (Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts), Creativity, and Leadership."

The students were required to bring two letters of recommendation, a letter written by the student, an arts survey completed by the parent and student, and portfolio pieces that were reviewed.

"We collaborated with six external judges who evaluated each student and completed a performance assessment.  The results were tabulated and student identification will be determined at the close of the sessions," said Flaherty.
