The Xanadu Benefit concert was a huge success. Thank you all for coming out. Highlights of the night are in the archive.
We've got two great TSDC additions lined up. One is out now, which can be found in the Concerts tab. Jess, Kevin, and Kyle cover "Lost in My Mind" by The Head and the Heart. The other performance is to be released soon.
Continuing our new series, we're happy to present another installment of the Tiny School Desk Concerts. This time, we're featuring Jeremy, Nick, and Greg, who will be performing with their band Coda at our Xanadu Benefit concert on 2-1-2013. Thank you to Rafael Reyes, Liam Shields, and Chris Forno for helping us capture this performance, and thank you to Mr. Pipolo and Mrs. Acker for making this all possible. Please enjoy the video of our immensely talented peers and come see them play on Friday. We'll see you there.
Xanadu brings you the first ever "Tiny School Desk Concert," based off of NPR's "Tiny Desk Concert" series. Our new recordings feature live, raw performances recorded in school, and uploaded to our website. Watch the extremely talented Emma Triolo, Kevin Shepherd, and Kyle Henson perform together for our first installment. With "You Make It Real" by James Morrison, we couldn't be more excited to have this performance as our first video to launch this new series. To watch the inspiration for this idea, click this link http://www.npr.org/series/tiny-desk-concerts/. We'd like to thank Shane Windt and Greg Pettit for helping us capture the performance. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed creating.
We're very proud of the new crop of poems and prose. We have many new writers, and we would like to formally welcome them into Xanadu. These submissions are a great way to kick off the second year of xanadulit.com. We're honored to host such a great display of Whitman students' creativity.
With the beginning of this new school year, the editors have decided to recreate Xanadulit.com. Renovating the entire website, we hope to draw in more viewers with an increased interactive nature, and allow the reader to become truly immersed in the culture of Walt Whitman High School. Each entry has been created by a Walt Whitman student, and we will soon be adding new entries to each category of art we hold. Please click around, read, be inspired.
