Cultural Awareness

Kristy Vang , Reporter

The multicultural assembly was a great opportunity for students to present their culture through dancing and singing. The multicultural assembly took place in the gymnasium on April 21st, 2015 during fourth period. Mr. Areida, the Student Activities Director, sent out a message to all the Titan staff if they would like to bring their fourth period class to the assembly. The first 10 staffs who respond to Mr. Areida’s message were only able to attend the assembly. The multicultural assembly was a huge success because of the chairman, Mya Settergren, and the help from Student Government.

There were ten performances during the multicultural assembly:

  1. Singing Titans (National Anthem and Alma Mater)
  2. Jazz Choir (Show You How to Love)
  3. Dance Club
  4. Ballet Folklorico
  5. Mariachi
  6. Polynesian Club
  7. Cambodian and Laos
  8. Winter Guard
  9. Winter Drumline
  10. Jazz Band

There were many great performances at the multicultural assembly. Winter Guard performance was definitely outstanding. Winter Guard definitely improved. Last year, winter guard did not win at any competition. However, winter guard was able to place this year. Their performance was elegant and their emotions carried out the whole performance. Although some of the performers dropped their rifles and flags, they were able to pick it up without panicking. The audience seemed to like the performance as well.

The Winter Guard performance was alluring”

The Cambodian and Laos dance was amazing. It was a performance that most students have not really seen at Chavez. There were always band, mariachi, and ballet folklorico. However, the performance was outstanding. Not many students have seen it and it made the assembly more cultural than ever.

Although there were an abundance of performances, there should have been more cultural performances. Student Government definitely worked hard on finding performances. Many students look forward for more performances next year.
