Every Tuesday during their break period, Shipley's Middle School students gather during snack time to listen to great music and socialize with each other while discovering the talents and passions of their classmates. The organized activity gives students a regular outlet to show off and provides opportunities for them to build their confidence. Of course, Talent Tuesday is as much about the grace of the students who sign up to be the promoters and stage hands as it is about those who have the courage to perform. These student promoters seek out talent in the Middle School who would like to experiment with being on stage in a small, intimate environment. On Tuesday, after advertising the week’s event to the Middle School at large, our stage crew builds up the stage and sets up the needed equipment and instruments. Our sound engineer tests everything and monitors the quality throughout the performance. The stage crew tears everything down and the process starts again for next week. All are invited to participate and/or watch!
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
