Guest Artist Series

For the past several years we have been hosting a series of guest artists to come and perform for our community. This serves our Fine Arts Diploma Endorsement Program as their series of Colloquia that they need to attend per year. We also do it to provide wonderful arts events for our community. Each evening will consist of a performance or discussion, followed by a question and answer period for our community.

You are invited to each of these evenings. This year's artists series and schedules will be updated throughout the year. Full details and artist bios will be provided for each artist. We hope you can take advantage of these great opportunities.
