Toad Music Fest, now in its seventh year, took over the stage of the Milligan Center for the Performing Arts last Saturday night. Toads from all realms of the Thacher community—students, faculty, staff, family and friends—graced the stage. Even our hard-working trustees took a break from their board weekend activities to perform a Thacher-ized rendition of a classic Beach Boys' tune. Treated to more than 25 different acts, the crowd enjoyed a wide variety of music ranging from a cappella to indie rock, to a Disney theme song. Pa Houa Xiong '18 also performed a dynamic hip-hop dance piece.
