Celebrating Culture at HGSE

Those were some of the things I sang about in four different languages with HGSE’s a capella group, The Class Notes, at the annual Multi-Cultural Festival. The evening began with a spread of international food unlike any catered school event I have ever seen. Someone told me later that several local restaurants contributed to the feast (did you know Boston is a foodie’s dream city?). The mountains of diverse deliciousness on everyone’s plates unintentionally replicated the seven summits of the world!

After dinner, the crowd was treated to a showcase of student talent including Brazilian Capoeira, spoken word poets representing South and North Korea, step performances, a graceful Peacock dance, trivia questions about each country in Africa, and much more. We concluded the event with some intense cross-program Salsa dancing. It was a beautiful night.
