    Dear JH Classical Academy Parents

    Songs can stir powerful emotions that transport us back in time. Opening Ceremony on Monday morning began with listening to three glorious pieces by 16th Century British composer Thomas Tallis. My mind retrieved experiences singing that early polyphony in numerous cathedrals across England, Scotland, and Wales, recalling the beautiful reverberations and an important time in my life. Music suggests much about the society in which it is created, reflecting the culture and people of historical times. Students learned how Tallis adapted his compositions to fit the demands of rapidly shifting Royal tastes during a time of political and religious turmoil and how he influenced his pupil and fellow composer William Byrd.

  • Ancient Greek Masks

    In their studies of the Ancient world, Miss Rock’s 7th grade ancient history class recently reenacted a section of The Frogs by Aristophanes, the 4th century Greek comic playwright. After studying Sophocles tragedy Antigone and excerpts from Aristophanes’ The Frogs, the 7th grade students pulled from their newfound knowledge of Greek culture and drama to contribute to the performance. Each student created a mask to represent a figure from the play, some making up the Chorus of frogs, where the play gets its name, and others the mythological figures of the god Dionysus and the ferryman of Hades, Charon.
