“As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.” - John Lubbock, British Biologist and Politician

Recently a parent from another private school asked me “How does Marist put on the quality arts productions that it does…and, how in the world does Marist produce those amazing costumes”? We are excited to give everyone a view of what goes on “behind the scenes” in this MAGazine! In 2005, when our oldest daughter was a third-term sophomore, our family transferred to Atlanta and we became a part of the Marist community. She loved theater, music, and the visual arts, but was obviously coming into the program well after others. Thankfully, she was immediately welcomed and was able to find her niche and pursue her passion. It has been such a blessing for our family to be involved with the arts at Marist. In retrospect, I realize that what has made the Marist Fine Arts programs so special for us is the wonderfully supportive connection that exists between the students, faculty, parents and alumni. We have seen firsthand the incredible effort that goes into every choral concert, band performance, art display and theater production. Many, many hours are devoted to make these creations look “easy”! This year MAG has been able to continue the tradition of supporting all arts activities, both in and outside the classroom. With your help, we provided new lighting equipment for the theater, scholarships to help our talented students develop their talents, computers for the program, and much more. In the future, MAG will continue to focus on providing what it takes to make our fine arts offerings amazing. On behalf of MAG, I want to thank everyone who helps to make the incredible happen. Thank you to our faculty, students, parents and alumni for bringing such joy to our campus. And, thank you to all of our supporters. We hope that our art continues to color the lives of you and your families!

Linda MacLean President Marist Arts Guild 2011-12 By reading this MAGazine, you are continuing the tradition of supporting the fine arts at Marist. While you await the lights to go down and the show to begin, ponder what has been happening over the past months in preparation for these talented young people to take the stage. The faculty, parents and friends that are the Marist Arts Guild work tirelessly and endlessly, moving seamlessly from one project to the next in an uninterrupted circle of productions, concerts, competitions, events and celebrations. Behind the scenes sets are built, costumes are created (see story on Stefanie’s Seamstresses on page 19), instruments are tuned, songs are prepared, lines are learned, and our children come away from Marist not only with academic preparation for the world beyond, but with confidence and know-how to “take the stage,” whether literally on a stage or figuratively in a corporate board room, in front of a classroom or in whatever worldwide arena their lives may take them. These pages tell you what the dedicated members of the Marist Arts Guild do and how our funds are spent. To learn more about who these young artists are and what they do, visit www.marist.com/mag for their stories of success in and out of the classroom. My hope as incoming President of the Marist Arts Guild is that we will see more of you early and often, supporting the arts at Marist. Your involvement not only enriches the lives of these young students. You will discover new friends, hidden talents and an abundance of laughter, love and joy. Everyone should be so blessed.

CH ORAL ARTS

Demand is high for the beautiful voices and talented musicians who make up the Marist Choral Arts Department. With invitations to sing at eight venues throughout the metro area this Christmas, Choral Director Sharon Coheley at times, felt more like an agent than a choral teacher. The Chamber Choir, Marist Singers, and Quartet fulfilled two requests from the community by performing prior to The Alliance Theater’s A Christmas Carol on December 8 and, by singing in the plaza of One Atlantic Center for a corporate breakfast on December 16. Invitations that the students were unable to accept included those from local businesses, assisted living homes, and a wassail ball. According to Mrs. Coheley who is celebrating her 20th year teaching at Marist, “I am thankful to be able to teach all musical styles. I teach everything from classical to jazz, from contemporary composers to Bach and Beethoven, musical theater literature, and best of all – sacred music,” she explains. “Making music with these students is such a collaborative art form; seeing them grow as musicians and into young adults is so rewarding.” Choral Arts’ busy schedule includes providing seven concerts a year, a Christmas assembly, and a music ministry team which cantors and leads music for school-wide masses. The group’s annual sacred concert at Holy Cross Catholic Church in February is the only performance that features all 290 choral students in one place performing as individual ensembles and as a large mass choir. Accolades abound in chorus this year with 10 students chosen for the all-state chorus. Those students include Natalie Boehnlein ’14 (4th year selected); Brendan Burke ’16; Hayes Callaway ’12 (2nd year selected); Tess Denniss ’16; Victoria Fahimmanesh ’12 (2nd year selected); Bryce Finch ’15 (2nd year selected); Lauren Hann ’15; Neil MacLean ’13; Lauren Whittaker ’14 (3rd year selected); and Becky Ittner ’12 (6th year selected).

Choral students have traveled around the world (to Italy, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, and Hungary) to perform in schools and churches. The students also travel in the U.S. to attend musical workshops. A trip last spring to New York City included attendance at two vocal workshops and was highlighted by the students getting to attend three Broadway plays. Traveling continues to be in the cards for these students as a trip to Orlando for Concert Choir, Chorale, and Chamber Choir, is planned this spring to participate in Disney choral workshops.

D RA MATIC ARTS

Watching students master their roles in everything from a 1930s comedy to a futuristic fantasy world, Performing Arts Coordinator Stefanie Stadler and Technical Director Eric McNaughton ’90, feel certain they are witnessing the evolution of the next generation of theater artists. “We are humbled by the small moments of transformation, and are encouraged when we see students realize that they can succeed,” explain Mrs. Stadler and Mr. McNaughton. “The shy girl who becomes self-assured with the addition of a wig and some glitter makeup, or the senior boy who decides to finally give theater a shot and ends up having the time of his life. These are the events from which we draw our inspiration.” The fall season began with performances of the hilarious Epic Proportions, written by Larry Coen and David Crane. Set in the 1930s, it told the story of two brothers who go to the Arizona desert to be extras in a huge biblical epic film, Exeunt Omnes. The brothers end up starring in and directing the movie, taking them on an adventure including gladiator battles, a love triangle, and even 10 plagues. More than 30 students acted in the comedy, which included some five set changes and eight weeks of preparation. The winter season’s one-act musical Zombie Prom, offered standing room only once the curtain rose. With music by Dana P. Rowe and book and lyrics by John Dempsey, this musical was set in the 1950s, and featured high school students dealing with typical teen issues, and a bad boy returned from the dead after driving his motorcycle into the local nuclear waste dump. The brightly colored costumes, 1950s vocals, and radioactive sets, kept the 40 actors and more than 900 attendees enlightened by the glowing display of talent.

Starmites, the spring musical by Barry Keating and Stuart Ross, will take students into the fantasy world of Innerspace, a magical alternate dimension. Like Zombie Prom, this offbeat rockn-roll comedy promises to be a crowd pleaser because of its flamboyant characters, toe-tapping music, and stunning design. In May, the 7th, 8th and 9th graders will perform music by the ever-popular Andrew Lloyd Webber when they enact Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on the stage of Woodruff Auditorium. This riotous romp through the Holy Land will include big Broadway numbers, and even a pharaoh who looks remarkably like Elvis Presley! Tickets are available before and after school in the main office, and in the cafeteria during all three lunch periods.

IN S TRU ME N TAL ARTS

The musical season at Marist never ends, with musicians performing everything from classical to jazz a near 24/7 at campus events throughout the year. “Is there ever a day in your life that you are not in contact with music? Don’t think so,” explains Mark Craddock, band director for Marist. “We are all surrounded by music almost all day every day,” he says. “Musical inspiration is everywhere – the supermarket, movies, commercials, on the radio, and on your Ipod; it has been hot-wired into our souls since the beginning of time. By requiring at least two years of musical instruction, we are allowing our students to tap into that inspiration and learn to make a joyful noise their own way,” says Mr. Craddock. This year’s 61-member marching band made a joyful noise for football and music fans alike with the music of Queen from its Queen 2 Album. Favorites included ‘The Fairy Feller’s Master Stroke,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and “Bicycle Race.” The group’s royal performance of Queen in three fall competitions brought home 37 trophies. The Jazz Band, led by Scott Sparrowhawk, performs throughout the winter and spring at four to five concerts and events around Marist. This year’s 20- member group dazzled students with swing and funk versions of

“Is there ever a day in your life that you are not in contact with music? Don’t think so” - Mark Craddock traditional Christmas carols such as “We Three Kings” (Kings of Swing) and “Angels We Have Heard on High” at the annual schoolwide Christmas assembly. The band will play well-known jazz tunes such as “Coconut Champagne” and “Minnie the Moocher” at upcoming performances both on and off the Marist campus. “These groups are so important to helping students develop problem-solving and life skills,” says Mr. Sparrowhawk. “Being in band is so hands-on for literally every student; they must learn their part and be in tandem with the other musicians to succeed. Without each student’s 100 percent participation, whether it’s the Beginning Band or the Jazz Band… the music just doesn’t come together. Everyone has equal responsibility to make the end product happen.” In addition to marching band and jazz ensembles, Marist musicians can be seen in the pit orchestras for school plays sitting side-by-side with seasoned professionals, at Family Mass, the Heritage Circle Mass, and six seasonal concerts. Numerous band student accolades include selections for District Band, All-State Band, and University of Georgia Honor Band.Those

selected include Margaret Williams ’17, Matt Boerner ’15, Noah Barulic ’15, Grace Ahearn’14, Dennis Frank ’14, Jiji Shin ’14, Marissa Valecruz ’14, Jackson Taylor ’13, Rebecca Hagler ’12, Susan Lee ’12, and Erin McDevitt ’12. With the support of family, faculty and the Marist Arts Guild, Marist musicians will continue to make sweet music this spring as they support the school’s spring musicals Starmites and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and as they compete in the Chanel Band Battle of the Bands in April.

VIS UAL ARTS If a school’s art department is considered a success or failure based on the work its students produce, then Marist’s Visual Arts Department is a winner any way you look at it. Susan Lee ’12 who plans to attend Columbia University in the fall, had her artwork selected as one of 15 pieces chosen for the 2011 Advanced Placement Studio Art poster from some of the most outstanding works created in AP Studio Art classes from around the country. According to Lee, “I took art as an elective in 7th grade but didn’t really become confident in my work until 9th.” Interestingly, her work that was selected for the AP art poster is not her favorite. “I usually prefer oil. Mr. DeAngelis convinced me to try a graphic piece with a mixed media collage,” she explains. “I learned a lot and got to revisit the concept of just creating what I wanted.” “Mr. DeAngelis is different. He tells us what we need to hear to get better, not just to boost our egos,” says Lee. Led by Department Chair Dr. Michael Bieze who is now in his 26th year at Marist, visual arts continues to offer students an array of choices including ceramics and photography, taught by Bill Buckner; illustration, painting and digital design, taught by Patrick DeAngelis; and art history and AP Studio Art, taught by Dr. Bieze. Mr. DeAngelis also teaches AP classes. AP Studio Art has flourished this year, retaining an impressive enrollment of 11 very talented students. This intensive art and design curriculum prepares students interested in pursuing graphic design, interior design, industrial design, fashion design, and architecture degrees at the collegiate level.

In a home located less than two miles from Marist School, some 10 plus women have met weekly for more than 25 years to produce some of the most creative, inspired costumes ever sewn by volunteers. These women, known as “Stefanie’s Seamstresses,” and with their own label lovingly referred to as “House of Stefanie at Marist School,” are led by our own Stefanie Stadler, drama department head and faculty member at Marist. The seamstresses produce more than 400 costumes per year, and are responsible for all ensembles worn by each student on the stage of Woodruff Auditorium. “All of these volunteers are a special breed – talented, patient, creative, and very generous with their time and energy,” says Mrs. Stadler. The seamstresses sign up to sew as one option for contributing to the theater workforce. Their commitment includes being at Stadler’s home on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until the costumes are finished. Some also work on costumes at their own homes. According to Bunny O’Keeffe, who co-directs the group, “I have been sewing all my life; I grew up in Guatemala playing with fabric and watching my mother.” Now, in addition to sewing numerous costumes herself, O’Keeffe trains members of the group and travels yearly to New York with Stadler and group co-leader Linda Upton. While there, the volunteers spend five days combing through the fabric stores and making connections with owners; these special visits ensure the beauty of the fabrics seen onstage.

Stefanie Stadler says, “All of these volunteers are a special breed – talented, patient, creative, and very generous with their time and energy.”

“My favorites are usually leading role costumes such as ‘Gertrude the Bird’ from Seussical,” explains Mrs. Upton. “I was also inspired by the period costumes made from authentic reproduction patterns in Anything Goes and Guys and Dolls, just to name a few.” Seamstress Kathy Wilson enjoys the group so much that she has volunteered for nine years, despite the fact that her daughter graduated three years ago! “Sewing with this group is spectacular. I was a football mom for my son in the fall and couldn’t wait to begin sewing again with my friends in January,” explains Mrs. Wilson. “Volunteering as a seamstress for drama is like stepping out of the black and white rat race and entering a world of color, fashion and art!” Parent volunteer Barbara Heath, 2010 Marist Art’s Guild president, shares their inspiration. “I have sewn since my daughter Lauren was in A Christmas Carol in 7th grade,” says Mrs. Heath. “Seeing the costumes come to life and complete the story that our children are conveying is super rewarding.” Other seamstresses include Barbara Arthur, Annemarie Boehnlein, Sharon Bowman, Denise Calloway, Camella Curren, Karin Finch, Debbie Foreman, Maureen Hann, Maureen Kiely, Liz MacDougald, Kristen McNamara, Annie Peterle, Elizabeth Piper, Julie Stander, Madeleine Stagliano, and Leslie Vaughan, in addition to the many volunteers who have served in previous years. New volunteers are welcome to join the group at any time.

FROM MARIST TO THE MOVIES

LINDSEY TROUT

SWIMS UPSTREAM Lindsey Trout ’05 has wanted to be an artist since she was a little girl. Her parents encouraged her to write, draw, paint and sing, and they read and sang to her constantly. So, it was a not a big surprise when 3-year-old Lindsey got lost at an amusement park and was later found on stage with a group of actors. It’s also not a surprise that today she is making a name for herself in the competitive world of stage and film.

“I CAN SAY WITHOUT A DOUBT

that I wouldn’t be living the life that I am without the influence of Mrs. Stadler”

- Lindsey Trout She says it was at Marist where she learned about the “beautiful, collaborative nature” of the theater. “There was always something really magical for me in knowing that there were dozens of mothers sewing costumes while Dr. Bieze was designing a set while a whole group of people were hanging lights while we were rehearsing,” she says. “I can say without a doubt that I wouldn’t be living the life that I am without the influence of Mrs. Stadler,” Lindsey says. “From her, I learned about the relentless rigor and enormous amount of heart it takes to bring a piece of art to life. Mrs. Coheley helped me find my voice. Mr. McGraham brought discipline to my writing. I’m grateful to all of the Marist teachers because they certainly taught me a great deal about passion.” High school was a very busy time for Lindsey and a perfect springboard for the multi-layered life that she has today as an actor. She was a performer and Peer Leader, sang alto in Chorale, was Editor-in-Chief of the school paper, and worked on the Rapier. One of her favorite roles on the Marist stage was

as Maggie Cutler in The ManWho Came to Dinner, opposite James Groscsh who also was her co-president that year in the SGA. Lindsey received a B.A. in Theater Arts from Saint Louis University. The program allowed her to try her hand at acting, writing, directing, costuming, building sets, and technical work. She says this immersive experience gave her a thorough understanding of how theater works. While in college she was cast as The Fool in King Lear with the Saint Louis Shakespeare Company and embarked on a professional career while continuing her studies. Lindsey had an early dash of luck in a Master Class there with Lynn Redgrave. With a few hundred actors present, each was assigned a number. Lindsey’s number was the first one called, giving her the privilege of working one-on-one with Ms. Redgrave on a scene from Cymbeline. It’s been said that a career as an actor happens when talent, timing and luck converge. Timing has also been good to Lindsey. The summer after her freshman year at college, she submitted

A LU MN I IN TH E ARTS her headshot to be a film extra. She forgot about it until a year later when a casting agent asked her to read for a role, which she landed, on a different film. Her call was at 5 a.m. and with no car, she had to hitch a ride with a friend to get to the set. “My friend had to practically push me out of the car- I was so nervous,” she said. “They had to keep retouching my makeup between each take because I was so happy that I couldn’t stop blushing. I felt like I was doing something I was supposed to be doing.” Lindsey continues to have “pinch-me-are-these-real?” moments. She was cast in Up in the Air, a feature film starring George Clooney. She remembers shooting an exterior shot that looked into two hotel rooms, with her at one window and Mr. Clooney at another. In reality, the actors were not divided by a wall inside. The production assistant called for everyone to “clear the set except for George and Lindsey,” yielding yet another surreal experience for the young actor. She later

replaced the body double for Anna Kendrick, the female lead in the movie, netting her even more time on set. Lindsey is currently in her third and final year at The New School for Drama in New York City, where she will complete her MFA. It’s a collaborative school in which aspiring actors, directors and playwrights work together despite studying different tracks. Lindsey has been writing this year and says that hearing her own words being spoken on stage is almost as exciting as acting. “The beautiful thing about this aspect of the program is that we essentially graduate with a fully functioning theater company, ready to develop and produce our own work,” she says. That said, Lindsey points to her Thesis Role of Shakespeare’s Juliet as one of her most rewarding experiences to date, saying that she has learned a lot about courage by playing the iconic character. The 16-hour days of graduate school are intense, but Lindsey has managed to sneak in more professional work. Last fall, she filmed the first episode of a new sitcom called The Prospects in

In January she was commissioned to work with other New York actors to create a new theater piece for The Old Vic in London, where Kevin Spacey is Artistic Director. Her team will get to write and perform the piece, which will take her to London for the first time this July. Lindsey says that a life in the arts is not for the faint of heart. “I read once that an actor must have the vulnerability of an eggshell and the hide of a rhinoceros and I’ve found this to be true,” she says. “Not an easy task, but so very worth it for those of us with a mad need to create.”
