Junior Jerry Sola and his band took home first place in the 2016 musical performance category.

The annual Sound and Vision Night music and art event has been scheduled for March 10 in the school auditorium by Quill and Scroll President Alyssa S. Feliciano.

“Sound and Vision night is a night where we display West Shore students’ talents,” Feliciano said. “It’s very laid back. We have visual art as well as actual performances, and every year we give away prizes. I’d like to think it’s a good night for kids to express themselves around people who truly want to be there to see their art.” 

Quill and Scroll is an international journalism honor society, which requires its members to have been published and to maintain an overall 3.5 grade-point average. The National Art Honor Society provides paintings, photographs and sculptures for the event.

“Sound and Vision night is where all the creative types such as artists, performers and actors are given a space to showcase their talents for an audience,” Quill and Scroll member Danielle Ferretti said.

This year organizers hope to place a special emphasis on video submissions in order to grow that aspect of the event.

“I hope that people come to Sound and Vision night not only to support their fellow classmates, but to possibly learn something about someone they didn’t previously know, and to enjoy themselves,” Feliciano said. “It’s going to be a great night full of great art and memorable performances.”

Ferretti said she hopes a large number of non-artists turn out for the show.

“They can support their classmates and friends and see how talented our student body is,” she said. “It’s just a really fun night. There’s food and there’s music. What’s not to like?”
