Watkins Mill High School’s O’Shea players will be holding its second “Coffee at the Mill” for the 2016-2017 school year, this Friday, March 17 in the cafeteria from 6:30pm to 9pm.
Students from Watkins Mill and other schools will be able to show off their talents. There will be various performances taking place, including poetry, spoken word, dance, music, and even visual arts.”[Coffee at the Mill] is basically [an event where students can showcase] whatever [they] have to offer,” senior Jyline Carranza said.
“[Coffee at the Mill] is an opportunity for students who are interested in the arts in this school and outside of this school to come to the cafeteria and enjoy performances,” senior Lenox Kamara said. There will be lot’s of musical performances such as solos and duets. Watkins Mill’s Jazz Band will also be performing.
The National Art Honors Society will also be showcasing their artwork and talents. Aside from all the performances there will be coffee and other hot beverages and food will also be catered by Wingstop. Students will be able to enjoy these performances with tasty snacks.
Coffee at the Mill made its debut in October with Kamara organizing and founding the event. He came up with the idea during his sophomore year, with some of his fellow art friends. This year he was able to combine the drama and music department to finally make the event happen. “It’s great to see that this year it’s starting to happen and I hope I started a tradition,” Kamara said.
Students who are interested in performing can sign up at the door. “It’s a good audience and a good setting because people want to listen and they are all encouraging and accepting because they are on the same boat and they want to do the same thing,” senior Ian Nathan said. “It’s a way to promote the arts and encourage people to express themselves through art.”
The event is open to students from any school and will take place in the cafeteria. Tickets are $5 for non-performers and $3 for performers.
Bring a date… or a friend, and come enjoy these great performances at Watkins Mill’s Coffee at the Mill!
