Raising stars

Among the many beautiful elements of Friday's Commencement ceremony: listening to the voices of Seniors Maritzelena Chirinos, Lowell Oakley and Emily Cotten intertwining one (say it ain't so!) last time on the stage. Here's to the fantastic fine arts teachers who lifted these students toward their best performing selves!

Durham audiences have at least one more opportunity to hear Emily and Lowell singing together. They have been selected as finalist candidates for the Best Actor/Actress categories of the Triangle Rising Star Awards program.

Next Monday, June 2, at 7:30 p.m., the 20 finalists will perform in a showcase event at the DPAC. Click here to learn more about the competition, how to buy tickets, and which DA production is a finalist for the Best Musical category.
