Drama & Music Programs
Our theater, dance, and music programs cover all aspects of the performing arts.
Productions and concerts take place in elegant Hessel Hall, a state-of-the-art facility that enables outstanding production values throughout the performing arts curriculum. These theatrical productions, which provide both technical theater training and acting opportunities, provide our students with incredible experiences that enrich the entire school community.
Music education is an important part of the LWA experience, with opportunities for children to learn about music both inside and outside of the classroomRead More
The Middle School then introduces Concert Band and Jazz Band, and the Upper School music program includes a Wind Ensemble. Students can also participate in Chorus during both the Middle and Upper School years.
In the Upper School, music also moves into the classroom, with elective classes on the Fundamentals of Music Theory and AP Music Theory.
Participation in choral and instrumental groups, with all students required to study an instrument, further demonstrates our commitment to the value of performance.
A school with a robust drama program helps build well-rounded adults. It also sends its students off into the world with a comfort level performing on the big stage; be it an actual stage, a sports arena, or a Fortune 500 boardroom.Read More
