North Allegheny hosting ‘Squonk Opera’ inspired student art exhibit

Tony LaRussa
The Pittsburgh-based theatrical music ensemble Squonk Opera, pictured here during a performance at the 2015 Arts on the Allegheny in Kittanning, served as the inspiration for an art show by North Allegheny students opening on May 8, 2019.

Student created art inspired by the Pittsburgh-based Squonk Opera performance group will be on display at an exhibit opening at North Allegheny Senior High School.

The free May 8 art show will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The student designed integrated art installation was influenced by art teachers Fran Hawbaker and Bob Tozier and pays homage to the popular Squonk Opera touring troupe, which received its first major commission in 1995 to create “Night of The Living Dead: The Opera.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
