More than 1000 Wake County public school students from 30 schools performed on March 14 at 7 p.m. in the 29th annual Pieces of Gold at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Pieces of Gold is an annual arts extravaganza produced by the Wake County Public School System and Wake Education Partnership.
My granddaughter Grace who is in the fourth grade at Lacy was one of the dancers in the Lacy production. They had studied the evolution of jazz.

Students and teachers work throughout the year to produce performances that support the curriculum as well as entertain an enthusiastic audience. The event also serves as an annual fundraiser for Wake Education Partnership.
The students of Martin Middle School used special effects with puppets and told the story of Medusa under the sea. Their production was among my favorite.
For the finale all the students appeared on stage or in the aisles of the auditorium. It was quite a show.
