Here at conservatory we have a bulletin board that houses an envelope labeled, “Shout Outs”. What is a shout out? A shout out is recognizing someone for doing something great that deserves special mention. Teachers, students, observers, can write one (or several) on a card and submit them in that envelope. Every week we have been picking a “highlighted” shout out to both present on the board itself and here! We never posted the one from last week here, so this week we have 2!
Week 1 Highlighted Shout Out:
“Shout out to everyone! You had the courage to get up and sing in front of a new group of people!”

Week 2 Highlighted Shout Out:
“I would like to shout out Chris Gambino for being an amazing person, super supportive, and overall hilarious!”

We also have some extra shout outs this week that deserve a mention. A few of our teaching artists/directors were honored last night at the NY Innovative Theatre Awards Nomination Event. Jessica Bashline’s production of THE DROWNING GIRLS that starred Marissa Porto as well as a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM starring Elise Reynard were both nominated for Best Revival of a Play. Unfortunately this means their shows are competing…but it is nice to see so much love from the NYIT awards for our Wingspan staff!
