A group of 45 talented young men and women in grades 3-9 displayed an impressive range of musical and dramatic abilities in the 7th annual talent show hosted by the L. P. Vaughn School of Fine Arts April 19. The event was held in the school’s gym before a capacity crowd of family and supporters from the community. The students sang, danced, played instruments and performed dramatic pieces.
The performers were from The L.P. Vaughn Academy of Fine Arts, a truly remarkable collaborative effort between the school, NSU and the larger community in which any student in Natchitoches parish may receive expert instruction in the different areas of music and dramatic arts at an extremely modest price. There are talented children in every area of our community. Finding and nurturing them is a moral obligation on all of us. The talent show was a joy to watch. Well done ladies and gentlemen!
