UA Performing Arts Banquet

The Ursuline Academy Performing Arts Banquet is our time to celebrate an outstanding school year of music concerts, theatrical performances, and other performing arts activities! The evening begins with a video highlighting all major UAPA events while we enjoy a delicious catered meal. After dinner, the Senior Showcase allows for underclass women to give a speech honoring an outgoing senior friend and then the seniors have the opportunity to perform a song of their choice on the Besl Theatre stage one last time. The evening concludes with the announcement of the four UAPA Scholarship recipients, including the Mallory Naab Memorial Scholarship. The singing of the school song brings the evening to a close.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that changed all of our lives in March 2020, the 2019-2020 UAPA Banquet looked a little different than most years. Held entirely online, the evening started with a prerecorded 19-20 highlights video that included the two-part Senior Showcase. The second half of the evening took place in real time on Microsoft Teams, where the recipients of the UAPA scholarships were announced live! Although we weren’t able to gather in person in Besl Theatre, the Performing Arts community was still able to pray, laugh, and celebrate together from the comfort of our homes. Please enjoy the images below, highlighting the Senior Showcase and our beloved Class of 2020.
