Expressions 2014 is a show featuring our talented young artists and a vital fundraiser for BSA that helps to provide for everything from performances and scholarships to master classes, cultural outings, and supplies. Over the course of a long weekend we welcomed 2,000 guests to the school to see our talented young artists perform everything from Bernstein to the Beatles. We are grateful for all the support! With your help, we raised $350,000 for BSA's students and programs.
We were thrilled to have two of our graduates co-chairing: esteemed actor Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. of The Wire and The Walking Dead, and Grammy-nominated jazz musician Antonio Hart! They were joined by a fabulous team also at the helm this year -- Larry Jennings, Wally Pinkard, Sam Polakoff & Mike Riley.

The show included everything from Shakespeare to selections from Balanchine's Serenade and Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings. If you loved those pieces, come back April 9&10 to see the Serenade in its entirety as well as other selections of Russian works.
The visual artist's Spring Exhibition is also open through the ned of May -- Please stop by the Segal Gallery any time and take a look!
This year we conducted a special "Text-for-Tech" campaign to raise money for much-needed technology upgrades -- We received $20,000 in pledges and gifts -- thank you!
