    In November of last year, the Annapolis High School IB Diploma students 9-12, along with students from our PYP and MYP sister schools, Germantown Elementary and Annapolis Middle, were treated to a musical performance by the Natalia Arroyo Ensemble.  The Mexican quartet  performed traditional and contemporary music from northern and central Mexico. The quartet mixes pieces from Mexico with Latin rhythms using guitar, violin, double bass, and traditional instruments of the areas. The leader, Natalia Arroyo, is a multi-instrumentalist and composer and has performed in festivals and musical   events   throughout the world, including the Smithsonian Folk Festival in Washington, D.C.

    Students participating in Shakespeare workshop The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory conducted a workshop with our 10th grade IB Diploma students during 1st and 3rd periods.  Students  examined how Shakespeare used the technique of rhetoric within his various plays.  The students were also given the opportunity to utilize their knowledge by performing a short piece in front of their peers.
