At FRA, the arts are a priority, and our arts offerings complement our intellectual, athletics, and spiritual pursuits, lending a creative outlet to let students' minds solve problems in unexpected new ways.
Our students are encouraged to explore various forms of art as they progress through middle and upper school, and many of our graduates are pursuing their artistic passions in college and beyond.
Senior Sabrina LaFaye, who had six pieces of art displayed at Cheekwood as part of the Scholastic Arts Competition, will have two of those pieces displayed at Carnegie Hall in New York! Sabrina plans to attend Tulane University to take classes in architecture, life science, and art as she looks to pursue either architecture, medical illustration, or both!
Congratulations to Spencer Guy, FRA trumpeter, for his selection to the 2019 Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts. Spencer, who is an FRA All-Midstate musician, auditioned and was offered a full scholarship to attend the GSFTA.
Congratulations to our vocal ensemble members who were adjudicated in MTVA's Choral Festival and received a Superior Rating, the highest honor!
