The Vassal Lane Talent Show, held on the evening of March 27, was a huge success, with its 21 acts drawing an enthusiastic full house. The mainly musical performances ranged from an original play performed by a group of 6th graders to several bands spanning all grades. Seventh grader Oliver Saffery, who was in four acts with his band ADHD, had this to say: “It was a pretty incredible experience.” Brian Gellerstein’s musical and technical direction kept everything running smoothly and ensured that the show went well. Lila Lifton, who performed the Imagine Dragons song Radioactive on her violin as she “looped” said, “It was thrilling.” JJ Gonson, mother of Oliver Saffery, said “I love the talent show, and I am ever amazed at the level to which Mr. Gellerstein helps the kids to go. We are all lucky to have such a great music department helping the kids to realize their musical goals. Yay!”

The two bands, The Beatless and ADHD, performed rock hits, while the variety of other musical acts stretched from country fiddling to an original piano composition. All in all, the VLUS Talent Show was a night to remember.
