Great Performances - CPFA Friday Night Cafe - Song For My Father


There are many things about working for a unique blended learning school that I really enjoy. One of the benefits are great extra-curricular programs that The Center for Performing and Fine Arts offers to its students and families. Theatre productions, Life After High School Workshops, Dinner and a Movie Nights (classic films of the 50's and earlier), and Friday Night Cafe. Friday Night Cafe features student performances of all kinds - music, skits, comedy routines, dance numbers, all volunteer and screened by our Center's Director.


This particular Cafe was a special occasion: one of our senior students, as part of her senior project, held a silent art auction featuring artwork by CPFA students and faculty. Auction winners were announced at the end of the evening. The auction proceeds and Cafe ticket income went to Art Feeds, a non-[profit organization prodiving artistic experiences to underprivelidged children. Over $1,300 was raised through this effort.


This performance of the jazz standard "Song for My Father" features myself on clarinet, senior Kendall Johnson on guitar, and CPFA guitar teacher Sean Townsend. It's an up-tempo take on a classic latin chart. I apologize for the video quality - it was shot on my cell phone.
