Performing Arts Center

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.

Original Compositions:

These original works were written by three students in Dr. Cadwallader's Composition class, and then performed/recorded by a professional woodwind quintet. (Click "next" to hear each track.)
