Reunion Weekend 2019: Concord Academy Alumnae/i Reflect and Reconnect

June 12, 2019

From June 7 through June 9, CA welcomed more than 200 alumnae/i and former faculty back to campus. Idyllic spring weather set the tone for a Concord Academy reunion weekend with strong turnout and great energy. With attendees returning from 14 different classes — from the class of 1949 celebrating its 70th reunion to the class of 2014, its fifth — the weekend gave former classmates many opportunities to catch up, reminisce, and explore today’s campus and the town of Concord. Alumnae/i from across the generations had a chance to mingle and learn how others remain involved in the life of the school, and to make new connections with fellow alumnae/i who have carried CA’s values out into the world.

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

February 1, 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.

Comedian Hari Kondabolu Takes the Stage at CA

January 31, 2019

Hari Kondabolu doesn’t usually play high school auditoriums. Watching the acclaimed comedian work the audience in Concord Academy’s Performing Arts Center on January 31 offered an exceptional insight into his creative process. Also a writer, filmmaker, and podcaster, Kondabolu has made a career of using humor to call attention to issues of inequality surrounding race and other social identities. Within a 30-minute standup routine, Kondabolu gave CA students a taste of his unique blend of personal storytelling and political humor, and his approach to his teenage audience was enlightening in terms of craftsmanship as well as content.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2019

January 22, 2019

On January 21, CA students, faculty, and staff gathered to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by spending the day engaged in social justice discussion and work. As we do every year, instead of taking a day off, we had a “day on,” organized by the Community and Equity Office, to spend time considering our own identities, the societies we live in, and the future we want for ourselves and for others in our communities. Look for a recap of the full day’s program in the next parent newsletter.
