CCHS DANCERS EXPLORE LIZARD KING. Costume designer and dancer Christina Fiorentino of Carlisle, a CCHS senior (center), is joined by CCHS students Maia Tekle (from left), Samantha Stern, Caroline Stiffler, Sarah Atherton and Laura Belkner as they display some of the costumes Fiorentino designed and created for "Dance of the Lizard King." Jennifer Micarelli Webb of Carlisle created and choreographed the innovative production to be performed on Thursday, May 16, and Friday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the CCHS auditorium.

Did you hear on WBUR the Mother's Day story about the sister and brother who gave their mother scrambled eggs made in the toaster oven (they weren't allowed to use the stove)? This funny story was told on the air by the "sister" Alison Reid, who is the daughter of Mark and Kate Reid of Carleton Road and is currently the music intern at the First Religious Society.

Carlisle Middle School Senior Band performs at Tanglewood
Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood provides a spectacular venue for the Carlisle Senior Band's performance on Mother's Day.

As a result of their gold medal performance at the Massachusetts Instrumental and Choral Conductors Association (MICCA) Concert Festival in Lexington at the beginning of April, the Carlisle Schools' Senior Band was invited to perform at Tanglewood's Ozawa Hall on Mothers Day, May 12. The eighty-seven member ensemble played their program in front of a full house of parents, well-wishers, and members of other award-winning groups, including the CCHS Chorus and Band. Although the weather could have been a little more "cooperative," the spectacular Tanglewood performance venue made a lasting impression on all who attended. Band members and parents were treated to a catered barbecue (under a tent, thankfully!) after the performance, and everyone left with positive feelings after the day's events. Special thanks should be extended to Margie Zuk for her chaperoning efforts; Karen Morse for her organizational assistance; and to Mr. and Mrs. Singhal; Mr. and Mrs. Jeffers; and Mr. and Mrs. Lewis for their help in transporting instruments.
