During A and B lunches, starting next Friday, Oct. 26, individual voices will fill the commons giving speeches and singing songs. The new open microphone, hosted by Folio, the school’s literary magazine, will allow students to creatively express their opinions and talents.
All participants need do is sign up with a Folio staff member, stationed in front of the planetarium, explain what their performance will be and follow the guidelines relayed to them.
Folio supervisor Kathryn Fishman-Weaver said anything goes, so long as the performance is “school appropriate.”
“Folio’s been really thinking about ‘What is our creative niche?’” Weaver said. “And one area we thought we could explore was creating an open performance space where we can encourage more creative expression and give everyone an opportunity. … We’re hoping it will be a really supportive environment.”
