This summer, EEPA students had two occasions to perform the National Anthem for The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds, our city’s professional Ultimate Disc Team. The kids were a HUGE HIT, and the family-friendly setting of the games provided a nice opportunity for us to relax and have fun together. One of our students even got to throw out the first disc of the game, and a few more won prizes during half time games. We’ll definitely be going back again.

EEPA Theatre Students
Students from East End Performing Arts sing the national anthem at the June 26th Pittsburgh Thunderbirds game. After singing, families enjoyed the game for free, and got to take part in other festivities, such as the on-field halftime games , partaking in the food trucks, and enjoying each other's company and the game!
Trio National Anthem
EEPA voice students Tessa Douglas, Maddie Hilf, and founder & teaching artist Jamie Fair perform the National Anthem at the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds home game on June 11, 2016.
Our very own Abby was chosen to throw out the ceremonial first disc of the game. She was a little nervous, but enjoyed herself!
