On Thursday, March 9, the annual GFA Jazz Festival was held in the Janet Hartwell Performing Arts Center.
All Lower School students, 85% of Middle School students, and more than half of the Upper School students are actively involved in excelling in musical and theatrical pursuits.
In 2015, GFA celebrated the opening of its new Performing Arts Center to showcase both the performing and visual arts. But more importantly, it provides a state-of-the-art space for students to get down to the daily work of scene and costume design, theater technology, public speaking, rehearsing, and working on their craft.
The fourth grade musical is a tradition that has been part of GFA curriculum for as long as many can remember. An example of leadership and togetherness, the fourth graders were given a standing ovation after their production on March 9.
