Bold Ambition Campaign

Performing Arts - Part 1 & Part 2 Complete!

The second major facilities upgrade in the Bold Ambition campaign is the addition of a new music suite, completed in August 2016.  The music suite provides instructional and practice space to support the Academy’s thriving performing arts programs.  Academy students are acting, dancing, and singing year-round in dramatic performances, musicals, choral productions, seasonal concerts, and in programs offered in our summer camp.

 

The varied offerings of our music and performing arts programming exceed the existing space dedicated in McCormick Auditorium, the band room, and the two additional classrooms dedicated to performing arts instruction.  The new music suite provides two large-group choral and instrumental instructional rooms, separate individual practice rooms, and a space for digital music production.

 

Exceptional performance experiences for our students is another key part of the Academy Advantage.  Supporting the Bold Ambition campaign for music and the performing arts is pivotal to the sustainability and strength of the Academy's globally focused, liberal arts program.
