On Friday, Dec. 7, sounds of guitar, piano, and singing could be heard from the Commons as HHS transformed into an intimate cafe setting at Coffee House. Coffee House was put on by Tri-M and featured 15 performances of both music and poetry from students of all grades, allowing students to showcase their talent in the arts. Before starting the show, students in attendance treated themselves to an array of desserts, and of course, coffee.

The show featured the members of Art Honors Society showcasing their best pieces to their peers. Art of all mediums was displayed, including oil paintings, color pencil drawings, watercolor paintings, and sketches. Apart from the art, many students’ favorite part of Coffee House were the musical performances. Coffee House allows students to showcase their musical talents to their peers as no background tracks are used, the music instead being provided by guitar and piano players.

Along with the musical instruments, the performances do best to showcase the singing talents of the students. Some of the best performances of the night came from sophomore Mihika Ramen singing “Best Part” by Daniel Caeser, “Honey” by Kehlani was performed by juniors Sydney Salvacion and John Zajac, and senior Ria Anand sang “Growing Pains” by Alessia Cara. 

About performing, Anand said, “My favorite thing about performing is that it’s fun, and it allows me to share my love for singing and music with others.”

As Coffee House came to a close, Art Honors Society President Trevor McCarthy honored adviser and teacher Faith Wight. After many years of teaching, Wight is retiring after the end of 2018, meaning a new adviser will have to come take her place. On behalf of Arts Honor Society, McCarthy thanked Wight for all her hard work throughout the years, and that it wouldn’t be the same without her.

To close the night, seniors Matthew Martinez, Thomas Cavagnaro, and Quinn Obropta sang “I Won’t Be Home for Christmas” by Blink 182 to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Overall, Coffee House was a success, which was evident from the big crowd that attended.

Make sure to come to the next Coffee House in February.
