Recent Events Spotlight the Arts at Heritage Hall

by Gary Smith '22

The spring semester has been a jam-packed one for the Heritage Hall Fine Arts Department. Students across divisions have hit high notes in various music contests and productions and awed us with creative artistic displays highlighting multiple media.
On March 29, the visual and performing arts came together for the eighth annual ArtsWalk, a showcase of art, dance, and choral and instrumental music from Chargers of all ages. Starting in the Middle School fifth-grade “Clay Cafe” (a feast of delicious-looking pottery), attendees followed a path to the Upper School that featured artwork and live performances.
Days later, on April 1 and 2, Heritage Hall hosted student artists and performers from four fellow Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS) schools for a scaled-down version of the annual ISAS Arts Festival. 
Reflecting on the two-day event, sophomore Fine Arts student Madi Williams commented, “It was fun and inspiring to meet so many people who, like me, love the arts. I enjoyed cheering on musicians and dancers, singing along with vocalists, and visiting with art students from other schools. I’m already looking forward to next year’s festival.”
Summing up the week, Fine Arts Department Chair Jay Ferguson '96 observed, “It was a  wonderful celebration of our gifted students, our unparalleled faculty, and the school that continues to uncompromisingly provide opportunities for us all to create, collaborate, and thrive.”
Heritage Hall is a co-educational college preparatory school in Oklahoma City. As one of the few secular private schools in the state, we offer a challenging academic curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12, as well as unique leadership opportunities, a wide spectrum of athletics, and a well developed fine arts program.
