Mount Vernon Presbyterian School introduced a new holiday tradition in 2012 showcasing the artistic talents of its students. On Dec. 4, families enjoyed the Christmas Arts Showcase, an evening highlighting Mount Vernon’s visual and performing arts programs. Artwork created by all students in preschool through Grade 12 and a Christmas concert by the school’s instrumental and choral ensembles were included. A special reception in the new black box theater for all Charging Ahead donors kicked off the evening and provided a sneak preview of the dynamic performing arts space. Shown with trumpets are James Robison, Nelson Cummiskey, Ryan Daniels and Jason Harvey.
