Riverdale Community Celebrates Student Talent at Bi-Annual Event

[ May 06, 2014 ]

Nearly 400 parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and students gathered at the New-York Historical Society recently for a Spring Celebration of Riverdale students’ talents.

Guests enjoyed jazz music performed by students and faculty while they perused the displays of student art. They also chatted with students who were showcasing their recent science research, as well as their passions, such as fashion design, longboards, and customized bicycles created in the new Makerspace.

After mingling and cocktails, it was time for the entertainment portion of the evening. A fencing exhibition by two seniors and Coach Konate Primus turned interesting when Head of School Dominic A.A. Randolph was called upon to demonstrate his fencing skills—in his suit and red socks—with one of the students.

Although this was a hard act to follow, our Upper School vocal students were up to the challenge, singing two numbers before ceding the stage to the Middle School musical students, who performed two numbers from their production of Bye Bye Birdie. Riverdale’s jazz band closed out the show with a couple of numbers, sending guests on their way to dinner and additional chances to learn more about students’ work.
