The Waterford School, Utah's premier private college-preparatory school, will celebrate Arts Week March 24-28. The week-long celebration will include student performances in music, theater and dance, as well as student art exhibitions in photography, ceramics, drawing and painting.
Waterford's arts curriculum begins in preschool and provides an increasingly diverse matrix of opportunity as students advance through the program. In Middle and Upper School, students can explore a range of disciplines including theater, dance, orchestra, band, chorus, voice ensembles, jazz, chamber music, photography, computer graphics, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, and painting.
"The arts are an essential element to every student's experience and a critical component of a well-rounded liberal arts education," said Todd Winters, Waterford Director of Admissions. "The arts promote academic and personal growth, critical thinking and analytical skills, as well as imagination, creativity and innovation. Arts Week is a great way to celebrate the exceptional arts programs we have here at Waterford."
As a highlight to the week-long celebration, the Brigham Young University Chamber Orchestra, directed by Kory Katseanes, will perform a concert program on Thursday, March 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the Waterford Concert Hall, located at 9600 South and 1700 East in Sandy, Utah.
