Congratulations!

Last Thursday truly was A Night To Remember at the FrontYard Festival at the Dr. Phillips Center. All of the students did an amazing job showcasing their talent to the over 700 spectators in the audience. From the start of the show with the band taking the audience on a Great Movie Adventure to the choir taking us Somewhere Over the Rainbow, to the Lower School Evening At The Arts students singing their hearts out to Alice in Wonderland, Seussical, and Music Man; each and every performance was fantastic. We are so grateful to the Dr. Phillips Center, the Fine Arts faculty & staff, and the parent supporters and sponsors who made this special show possible.
