The alumni artistic team includes musical director Andre Catrini (’07), emcee Tomm Polos (’06) and band leader/music arranger Alison Shearer (’06). New this year is the fine-arts department’s Rite of Winter art show
“Our honoree is recently retired Assistant Principal Gil Cass," said Ruth Post, Vice-president of ArtsALIVE! “He is a true champion of the arts and was very instrumental in the growth and success of ArtsALIVE! In addition, in spite of having retired, he remains in touch with the Board regularly and insisted on volunteering his time to continue as our liaison with BOCES.”
All net proceeds from 5th Annual Encore Cabaret will benefit ArtsALIVE!, John Jay's arts booster club made up of parents and students to support, promote and provide funding for enriching activities and programs, visiting artists, class trips and other arts-related activities for the students of John Jay High School.
