Mr. Hartwig’s AP Literature class performed their Dante’s Inferno art projects in Opstad Auditorium on Tuesday afternoon. Evelyn Galstad ’16 and Claire Goodfellow ’16 performed a variation of Prelude to Suite ll by J.S. Bach with text from Canto lll, The Hell Inscription.

“We knew we wanted to do a cello and voice duet. Claire already knew the prelude so we figure it would be easiest to write my part,” Galstad said.  “It was tough figuring out where to put words in a cello suite, but I’m very happy with the end result.”

Musical performances as well as other video projects and sculptures were part of an assignment based on Dante’s Inferno, the first part of a 14th century epic poem entitled Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.
