We chose NOT TO POST DECLINED auditioners names.

   
           

Acceptance, Decline, and Wait List Letters will be mailed out by the week of March 10th.

 

If you do not find your name under the APA  DEPARTMENT, then you were not accepted

 into APA for this February 2014 audition period.

     
           

We would like to thank everyone who auditioned for APA. We applaud your efforts and

 

encourage you  to continue your education in the arts. APA is a highly completive program

 

and not everyone makes it in their 1st audition. Many students re-audition in their sophomore

through junior years. Many of the high schools in the HBUHSD offer rich performing arts

 

opportunities and APA encourages everyone to take advantage of them.

02/11/14 - Playlist featured in OC Register

Playlist 2014 serves up the next generation of songwriters
BY SEAN FITZ-GERALD / CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Published: Feb. 7, 2014 Updated: 4:48 p.m.

PLAYLIST 2014
Where: Huntington Beach High School, 1905 Main Street, Huntington Beach
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday
On any given weekday at 3 p.m., Huntington Beach High School is transformed.
The campus – usually home to the Oilers – morphs into the backdrop of the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts, otherwise known as the stomping grounds of Orange County’s next generation of artists.
At 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, the campus will host something even bigger: a concert for the next generation of popular-music singers, instrumentalists and songwriters. It will be complete with fluorescent lights, video cameras and wall projections, flaunting the creative fruits of more than 150 students.
Music, Media and Entertainment Technology, or MMET, one of the academy’s nine offshoots, which teaches modern production techniques, is revving up its Playlist 2014 show, which features original songs and short films created by students from throughout the Huntington Beach Union High School District.
In its second iteration, Playlist boasts an entirely student-produced approach, with 36 songs and a comparable amount of video work. Director Jamie Knight says the concert is a combination of mainstream and indie covers mixed with roughly a dozen original songs joint-produced by his 120 audio students.
“I’d always felt like I needed to do something that was their music,” says Knight, who before last year’s inaugural Playlist, used to curate retro jams for MMET’s shows. “Kids gain confidence in these types of productions.”
The academy is an arts magnet for the Huntington Beach Union High School District that offers full academic credits for after-school classes. Students are invited to apply to a glut of disciplines, including dance, theater, orchestra and MMET, among others.
Knight and Michael Simmons – who teaches the TV- and video-production students – have made a name for MMET in the past few years by engineering set lists with more of what Knight calls the traditional fare: a classic rock showcase of the Beatles and the Electric Light Orchestra, for example.
But with the rapidly evolving landscape of the pop music industry, Knight and Simmons wanted to push their students to take control of their own music.
Knight cites the so-called death of the music-industry process of artists and repertoire acquisition – or A&R – as one of the inspirations for MMET’s Playlist.
With the destruction of the mainstream record industry, thanks to downloading and streaming, Knight says, traditional A&R has transmogrified into reality-television virality (seen on such shows as “The Voice” and “American Idol”) and college “edutainment.”
“The college programs today aren’t geared for conservatory-style education. You actually learn what the music business is like,” Knight says, citing such forward-thinking programs as the University of Southern California’s pop music program, the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and Berklee College of Music, among others. “They are the A&R department for the future.”
Knight and Simmons, both Apple Inc. Distinguished Educators for their innovation in the classroom, have attempted to model MMET as a jumpstart to entering the music industry and the college music scene. MMET students, Knight says, learn how to make music, and then how to effectively share it with the industry, on social media and in the world.
One of MMET’s concrete ways of touting this trend is through its showcases and in its master classes, which see esteemed musicians such as Walter Trout educate and engage with students. Knight also believes in baptism by fire, encouraging students to book their own gigs and dive into local venues early on.
Huntington Beach High School senior Addison Love, one of the student producers for Playlist, says the teachers expect them to know their instruments and equipment. Instead of rolling through the tedium of learning fundamentals such as scales, Love says, Knight and Simmons encourage collaboration and self-promotion to galvanize the students into action.

Comments from the judges who attend our production in November included:

 

The play itself was very compelling. The talent of the students was overwhelming and the caliber of their performances was way above high-school.

The technical aspects of this production were truly the most impressive.

The more mature elements were handled with grace and the utmost professionalism

The Set was grandiose and perhaps the star of the show.

The entire presentation was beautiful and it was evident that the students understood the material and vision very well. The staging was perfect for the context of the play and the actors were committed to the plays story

 

Overall, the play was beautifully acted. Character commitment was at an all-time high and the character work and development was clearly evident.
