South Mountain Cultural Arts consists of the annual school musical, artist-in-residence programs for the various grades, and Soul at South Mountain. Soul at South Mountain is a musical lunch program that exposes students to various music genres through live performance during lunch, including performances from the school’s very own students. The artist-in-residence programs strive to immerse students in an artistic process that results in a masterpiece (e.g., poetry, art, photography) or a performance (e.g., dance performance, poetry reading. The programs are tied to the curriculum. The school musical stars 5th graders and gives 3rd and 4th graders the opportunity to perform in the company. The 2017 School Musical is Madagascar: A Musical Adventure. Cultural Arts is designed to enhance or even extend the classroom experience!
