Show

an interest in learning

We are tuning up in band, vocalizing in choir, gracing the stage in drama, snapping pictures in photography, throwing pots in art and –most importantly – coming to know an aesthetic point-of-view. Our students are well prepared to be appreciative audiences for and stalwart supporters of organizations like Midland Community Theatre.

Experience the difference. 17
