First choir show after a long time is set to showcase tonight April 27 at 7 pm for 1$ admission.

The Performing Arts Magnet has four different departments that students who enroll can be apart of. Dance, acting, stage tech and singing. The most popular ones being acting and dancing because it allows students to be apart of the school plays which involves all four aspects of what the PAM magnet is about.  Dance shows are also very much talked about but the one that ever really gets any recognition is choir or also known as singing.

Many students have always questioned why choir does not get their own time to shine like the other two more popular performing arts. Reasons why choir has not really done anything over the past year and a half is because Mr.Sexton who was the singing teacher had to leave for personal reasons very suddenly.

Leaving choir without an instructor and having substitutes coming in and out of the small choir room had students not knowing what to do. Many students were upset knowing that they joined the class to do a hobby that they enjoyed and actually showcase it, but was quickly taken away due to miscommunication with school staff.

After a year students finally welcomed their new choir teacher and have been preparing for their small showcase in dedication of 100 years of Broadway music.

If you don’t have anything to do tonight and have finished studying for your upcoming tests and finished all your homework, go out and support choir and enjoy the 100 years of Broadway Music Celebration.

Watch The Promise this weekend.

The Promise illustrates a powerful story about the Armenian Genocide while following the journey of a love triangle between the three main characters Michael, Ana, and Chris.

The movie starts off as Michael promises to his mother and future wife, Marta, that he will come back from his trip to Constantinople. Michael is passionate about becoming a doctor and wishes to continue studying to pursue his dream. Seeing as he comes from a poor family, Michael is forced to use the money from the dowry (the one that Marta’s family has given to him) to pay for his studies.

Upon arriving in constantinople with his uncle, Michael is soon introduced to Ana. Their similar Armenian cultures spur their friendship and later they start to fall for one another. This soon leads to a rivalry between Michael and Ana’s partner, Chris.

The Promise shows the horrifying treatments the Armenians received from the Turks. This movie was created in dedication to the Armenian Genocide and to spread awareness of the event. It follows the love triangle throughout the whole movie but also follows the tragic events happening in the movie; the massive killings, the unexpected attacks, and the many other forms of attacks the Armenians received.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is being released in about two weeks on Fri, May 5. The soundtrack in the first movie was great I can’t wait to see what they bring with volume 2. Some people bring a lot of hype to the movie and I think it’s going to be great. I would definitely recommend you to watch the first movie, it has an amazing soundtrack, great plot, and great actors. The main character is Star-Lord played by Chris Pratt.

     This movie is an Action/ Science Fiction movie and the first movie was rated at 8.1/10 on IMDb and given 91% rotten tomatoes and loved by many. I am hyped for this movie and i recommend everyone to go watch this movie and like most movies it is released on a Friday so go to the Arclight, or El Capitan after school or any movie theater near you.

The New Teen Titans movie is a action filled adventure movie. It followed the storyline of the 2016 DC comics movie, “Justice League vs Teen Titans”. The movie had a Cartoon Network feel. Due to the 2016 Teen Titans movie, this was expected to be a disaster. It proved otherwise. It had a 15% increase in audience score, based on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie was based on the new group of titans. They are on the search of a secret cult and evil organization that wants to manipulate humans to make meta-humans. The new titans included Terra, Starfire, Beast Boy, Robin, Nightwing, and Blue Beetle. The titans are struggling to find H.I.V.E., not knowing that one of them was a traitor. The story had a trust issue between the group. However instincts kicked in and they began a group when they needed it the most.

The Hollywood Bowl will be hosting a live performance of the movie on May 26 and May 27, Memorial Day weekend.  It’ll take “City of Stars” in the Hollywood Hills as a close second. The event is set to have a complete fireworks finale. Composer Justin Hurwitz will conduct the Oscar-winning score backed by a 100-piece orchestra, choir and jazz ensemble. The concert will premiere over the two nights here in L.A. before embarking on a tour.
