Seniors Share Their Talents at the Baccalaureate

by Patrick Huang on Friday, June 9th, 2017

As I looked up at the brightly lit stage in King Theatre, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of pride. Sure, I am not a member of the Class of 2017, but some of my greatest memories and friendships were made with the people who sat in the audience with me or performed on stage. The Baccalaureate on Monday, June 5th was a beautiful way for seniors and faculty to appreciate what the Milton community meant to the Class of 2017.

Starting off the event was the talented senior trio of Peter Duke (I) on the piano, Wes Hudson (I) on the bass guitar, and Teddy Beaudoin (I) on the drums. These three musicians have never ceased to amaze me, and their passion for music has created powerful performances at Beatniks and jazz performances. After their first piece, the trio was joined by Chloë LeStage (I) in another riveting performance.

Next up came Ege Yalcindag (I) and Caroline Massey (I), who led the audience in a wistful performance of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” Ege’s guitar strumming and Carol’s singing complemented each other’s strengths well. Allie Reed (I) displayed her prowess on the violin with Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” Using a foot pedal, Allie recreated the song from scratch by synthesizing a collection of recordings live.

Dalton Letorney (I) rocked the stage with the Coldplay hit “Viva la vida.” Having watched and admired his performances over the years, I was once again reminded by Dalton’s commanding voice and presence. Acclaimed writer and poet Letitia Chan (I) then shared two of her poems with the audience. In the latter poem humorously titled “Clams,” Letitia captured the the mix of emotions she felt after she had come back home to Hong Kong. In her cover of Khalid’s song “Angels,” Oladunni Oladipo’s sweet voice sunk into the hearts of many.

In a courageous and brilliant rendition of Bowling For Soup’s “High School Never Ends” and an equally impressive performance of Adele’s “When We Were Young,” Finn Congdon (I) and Keisha Baffour-Addo (I) successfully captured the nostalgic sentiment their fellow seniors were probably feeling. In a touching moment, Eshani Chakrabarti (I) dedicated her performance James Taylor’s “You’ve Got a Friend” to our beloved Ms. Marianelli. Zhenfeng Qiu (I) brought a subtle flair to a wonderful cover of a Japanese song, striking notes on the guitar with poise and sending them reverberating into the crowd.

And what is truly amazing is how this talent is only a fraction of what the Class of 2017 is made of. I wish this group of performers, artists, athletes, and leaders the best of luck wherever they are headed and cannot wait to see the fruits of their future success.
