CA’s New Choral Director Tai Oney is a World-Class Musician Who’s Serious about Teaching

February 01, 2019

A charismatic opera singer and Boston University graduate student, Tai Oney became CA’s choral director in September 2018. It’s a role that represents a change for the award-winning countertenor, who has performed around the world and spent much of the last decade based in London. But it’s a role that allows him to combine his own artistic pursuits with his desire to give to others what a dynamic teacher once provided him.

Urged by CA Students, Concord Select Board Approves Resolution in Support of a Green New Deal

March 6, 2019

“Only one world” and “No more excuses” read the signs a Concord Academy student delegation carried down Main Street toward the Concord Town House, where 10 CA students appeared before the Concord Select Board on February 19. Organizing as part of Sunrise, a national youth movement to address climate change and create millions of jobs in the process, the students were some of many around the country appealing to city councils, town boards, and county commissions last week, in the hope that widespread local support will push federal action on the Green New Deal resolutions now before Congress. They were successful in urging the town of Concord to pass a symbolic resolution calling on the federal government to support the legislation.

In a Guest Artist Residency, Lily Kind ’04 Brings Her Love of Vernacular and Experimental Dance Back to CA

February 19, 2019

The love Lily Kind ’04 has for vernacular and vaudevillian dance traditions and her abiding interest in taking risks were evident in her teaching approach during her two-week visit to CA in January. Kind is one in a series of professional dance artists — including Alexander Brady and Rika Okamoto from Twyla Tharp Dance — who have come to campus this year to work with and choreograph for the CA Dance Project and guest-teach dance classes. The Dance Company (now Dance Project), which she took part in all four of her years as a CA student, anchored her experience. “It’s where I learned how to be an artist,” she says.”

Uniting Her Passions for Crafting, Environmental Advocacy, and Helping Fellow Teens, Audrey Lin ’19 is “Matting Change”

February 16, 2019

To transform a heap of waste into a sleeping mat for a young person experiencing homelessness, it takes between 600 and 700 plastic shopping bags and 15 to 20 hours of an individual’s time. “It’s a labor of love,” says Concord Academy student Audrey Lin ’19. But it’s one she has convinced others to take on along with her through her senior project — teaching groups to make plastic yarn (or “plarn”) from discarded single-use plastic bags and to use it to crochet lightweight, portable, bug-free, waterproof sleeping mats. The project unites her love of craft with her passion for environmental advocacy.
