All events are free and will be held in the auditorium. “The James Clemens fine arts faculty hopes that you will make plans to join us for these events,” Anderson said.

The festivities started on May 2 with a choral concert with the combined concert voices of the James Clemens and Liberty Middle School choirs, conducted by Stuart Tankesley. The performances continued on May 3 and May 6 with 10-minute plays and films, produced by the theatre and broadcasting students.
