LFAS Commencement 2013

Langley Fine Arts School celebrated the first graduating class of the new millennium on June 12th, 2013.

The evening contained tribute performances from the grade elevens to honor the grade twelve students. Performances included the grade eleven drama majors rendition of “Bad Bunnies,” a play performed and written by the grade twelves two years earlier. Jessika Eppich, Erin Mozel, Jessy Choi and Cathy Oh represented the dance majors with a reflective choreographed piece.

For the writing major tribute, Annabelle Angle wrote and performed a rap-turned-slam poem called “Illiterate” and Sean Watson played guitar and recited an original poem. Chamber choir sang a beautiful song to honor the music majors, while the art and photo majors compiled slideshows with the best work from each of the grads this year.
