This year the Ensworth Performing Arts program had a standout season of shows. The Ensworth School of Dance brought the house down with their Remixed concert, middle school drama club introduced us to all sorts of talking animals in Charlotte’s Web, the Ensworth players brought us The Fantasticks and alum Sally Seitz’s original play The Wildhorse and the Racehorse. And who can forget the first ever high school production of Ring of Fire performed at the Ensworth Theater this March.
Recently Ensworth was invited to perform the opening number of “Ring” for the Nashville High School Musical Awards program at Lipscomb University. The group performed Daddy Sang Bass / Circle Be Unbroken. Briana Middleton was invited to perform “I Still Miss Someone” and Matt Lale accompanied on piano and sang backup. Drew Harris was invited to perform “Sunday Morning Coming Down” and Carter Pankow accompanied on guitar.
Later in the program the Ensworth Musicians were awarded Best Orchestra. More than sixty Ensworth parents, faculty and students attended. Here is a complete list of the awards won by this talented group of performers. Job well done!
