    The students of Renaissance High have a long-standing tradition of performing in front of their peers during a Coffeehouse. Though the pandemic has changed how the Coffeehouse has operated, it's not stopping students from demonstrating their talents.

    One of the ways Renaissance High is keeping the tradition alive is by recording performances to view later. Students set up and help run the equipment.

    "The students appreciate that they can perform for their friends," said RNHS Audio Production Instructor Paula Wolak. "All are welcome to perform, and the Renaissance audience is supportive, encouraging and always enthusiastic. Coffeehouses give us a chance to reveal other aspects of ourselves to our classmates and build a stronger community for knowing each other a little more. It's an opportunity to entertain and be entertained and to learn something about each other."
