Exciting News from the New Director of Vocal Music & Theatre

Welcome! If we haven't had the opportunity to meet, my name is Ryan Knight and I am the incoming Director of Vocal Music and Theatre at the Mt. Vernon Sr. High School Fine Arts Academy. I look forward to meeting all the students, parents, and community members who have become part of our fine arts family at Mt. Vernon. The Academy has some important news to share about the coming weeks and months ahead.

First, we will continue to offer courses in Technical Theatre and Advanced Technical Theatre to provide students with opportunities to earn Tech credits at MVHS and pursue their unique interests in the performing arts. Students enrolled for 2019-20 will receive more information about the syllabus and annual calendar during the first full week of class.

Second, we are blessed to have exceptional staff working with our team at the MVHS Fine Arts Academy. Mr. Kevin Roach, the full-time Artistic Director of the Evansville Civic Theatre, will return to direct our fall play and spring musical (titles and audition information coming soon!) Mrs. Patricia Green will also return to work with our choral ensembles as the full-time TA and Staff Accompanist. We are very excited to have both of these fine individuals on-board!

Lastly, I am excited to announce that our Chamber Choir has been invited by the DCINY performing arts group in New York to perform Christopher Tin's "Calling All Dawns" on March 23, 2020. Mr. Knight has prepared details regarding an optional trip during Spring Break 2020 for any interested Chamber Choir singers and their families. Info packets will be available to all students the first day of class. If you are an interested singer, please mark your calendar for an Informational Meeting on Thursday, August 15 at 6:00pm in the MVHS Choir Room.

Again, I look forward to meeting you and sharing more exciting information about the coming year. In the meantime, if you need to reach me, please email me at your convenience - knightrt@mvschool.org
