Dunlap High School was full of the fine arts on April 8.

The high school hosted the fifth annual Fine Arts Night for the community to come see various performances, artwork and even get a chance to control a robot.

The evening started off with the maroon jazz band and gold jazz band performing three songs each. Between the two groups Erica Shelby McClain came out and presented the dramatic interpretation that she performed at state.

Between the band and chorus, desserts were available for community members to sample made by music booster members.

Besides the food, the community was also able to view artwork and photos by students.

“During intermission, the parents were able to come out here and mingle and watch students work,” art teacher Jody Hale said.

Hale had some students showing their artistic skills off by drawing various portraits.

She said that many of the displays of photography came from her independent study students.

“As far as the fine arts department, it’s a mix of a little bit of everything,” Hale said.

Also on display during intermission was the robotics team. The team was telling the community about their recent successes, as well as letting people drive the robot they made last year around the gym floor and shoot balls into a wastepaper basket with the robot they made in 2009.

After intermission, the chorus put on a performance titled “I Love that Song!” which featured parts of various well-known songs.

“We had a great turnout,” Hale said. “The parents love the performances.”

The money raised from the night went to the music boosters, as well as to the robotics and fine arts band director Jason Shea said.
