Trimble County students will celebrate creativity in its many forms during the fifth annual Artapalooza.

The free event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today at Trimble County High School. It features visual art, drama, band, choir, dance and food. The public is invited to attend.

The event begins with an art show that includes almost 3,000 pieces from students from the middle and high schools. Both 2-D and 3-D items will be featured, using a variety of mediums.

Pieces will be on display in a case near the front office, in the library and in the school’s main hall.

At 6 p.m., dance students will display their skills with routines set to “Juju On That Beat,” and “Sing, Sing, Sing.”

At 6:15 p.m., the Trimble County girls choir will perform “What a Wonderful World” and “The New Girl in Town.” The blended choir will perform at 6:50 p.m. with “Better Place,” and “Tshotsholoza,” a traditional South African song.

The TCHS Drama Club will perform at 6:30 p.m. with “songalogues,” from several students. The “songalogues” combine song lyrics and monologue-style acting.

Finally, around 7:10 p.m., the concert band will perform the “Cumberland Falls Overture” and “King Cotton.”

Various student awards will be distributed throughout the night.

Attendees will also have their choice of a variety of refreshments and snacks provided by students involved in the high school culinary group.
