Students Perform Songs, Poetry at Coffeehouse


Sophomore Eric Then sings an original song at the coffeehouse.

The BASH Performing Arts Club hosted a coffeehouse performance Wednesday — the first event of this type that the school has had in years.

A crowd of 30 to 40 gathered in the library 3-4:30 p.m. to watch their fellow students recite poetry, sing, or play an instrument. The floor was open to anyone who wanted to perform.

BASH PAC Advisor and long-term substitute Mr. Kenneth Stanley said the performance was more successful than he expected.

“I was happy to see a lot of people come out and watch, even though they weren’t performing.”

Senior Charis Martin was one of three people who played the ukulele. She performed two original songs, including a “passive aggressive love song”.

“Charis had some really fun songs,” said Sophomore Cadwyn Mossholder, who attended the event.

Freshman Solomon Goldstein recited three original poems about personal topics such as strength and change.

The night was organized by Alaina DeMenno, a drama club member who transferred to cyber school in January.

Coffee and baked goods were sold, and free popcorn was provided at the free event.
