The first coffeehouse of the year on Nov. 20 was full of great performances by many talented Watertown High students! Many people came to watch their peers put on an amazing show. There were so many people in the WHS Lecture Hall to watch the show that some of the audience had to sit on the floor.

The opening act was Zoe Grodsky and Kira Peterson who sang, with Zoe playing the guitar. They were followed by other acts such as Katherine Nilov and Hakeem Alhady performing “Counting Stars,” and hitting every note perfectly.

English teacher Malcolm Cooke sang “Life is Beautiful,” and surprised his students as he also played guitar. He also did a duet with Jake Roche, who also demonstrated his amazing skills with the guitar.

That was only one of the many unique acts. Sasha Helfner did a rap compilation, featuring many top hits — and she performed even though she had a broken elbow.

Sandra Chacon took the audience’s breath away, reciting a powerful message about self image, and capturing everyone’s attention.

The crowd also heard an original poem from Jeremy Ornstein, an obvious future Shakespeare.

With so many courageous and skillful performers at WHS, there is sure to be another coffeehouse performance! Be sure to check in for the next show!
