Pianos, guitars and an upright bass. Folk music, torch songs, dance troupes and hip hop beats.  Standards, originals and everything in-between. This year’s North Star talent show had all these, all along with the most impressive constellation of gathered North Atlanta talent since, well — probably since last year’s inaugural North Star talent show.

This year’s event, held in the school auditorium on Sept. 30, brought together more than 20 acts. Event directors say the assembled series of both solo artists and groups revealed just how deep the talent pool is at North Atlanta. “It was so impressive to witness the caliber and breadth of this year’s talent,” said North Atlanta parent Brandi Diamond, a member of the event’s organizing committee. “North Star is designed to be forum for exceptionally gifted and creative kids to show off the talents a lot of people might not know about. And we just know that it was ‘mission accomplished’ where that was concerned.”  

The committee was comprised of Diamond, Karen Atkinson, Teri Biven, Linda Gerding and Jennifer McKenna, all North Atlanta parents. Ticket proceeds went toward the North Atlanta Drama Booster Club, an organization that supports theatrical endeavors at North Atlanta.

After auditions in August, selected acts rehearsed regularly right up to the late-September event. The strong response to both last year’s inaugural event and this year’s North Star have given committee members confidence that the talent show will be a long-enduring school event.

If the question is whether North Atlanta’s got talent, the North Star event provided the emphatic answer: “Yes!”
