FUSION: Presented by Arlington Christian School and Operation YES 6

A Celebration of the Arts Where Fine Art Met Popular Culture

FUSION was a multimedia explosion of talent and entertainment at the beautiful Southwest Arts Center, a perfect backdrop. From the ATLFunk Lords breakdancing crew to a small but mighty drumline, the event was nothing short of a celebration! There was acting, dancing, live painting, an art auction, instrumental selections and vocal selections, all illustrating the freedom of creative expression afforded the young people enrolled at Arlington. It was a moment that was set aside to exalt the arts along with academics and athletics, both of which are of the highest quality as demonstrated by the Boys Basketball Team’s recent State Championship. The highlights of the show were the fashion show and the rap performance of Common and John Legend’s “Glory.” The night ended in the crowd becoming choir, joining with the students in singing a gospel song, stressing the spiritual foundation that the nondenominational school was built upon.  Parents, community members, and faculty and staff were on their feet yelling, “Encore!” and “Bravo!”
