    ***On May 19, 2017, the 7th grade chorus and 9th period advanced art class went to CCMs 2017 teen arts festival. At this festival there was an art show competition where Audrey Weinstein won 1st place for her lion mask sculpture and Livia Ludlam won second place with her Ella Fitzgerald charcoal portrait. The 7th grade chorus did a tremendous job in their singing competition as well. It was a great day of art, music and pride in Briarcliff's many talents!***
