The Fine Arts Winter Retreat is designed to provide an educational retreat away from the normal school environment. Students will participate in daily intense workshops to learn new repertoire and perform for each other before returning home.  Friendships are built, teams are formed, and students work hard to improve and/or learn new skills!  They will also have time for other recreational activities.  We love to work with and get to know these students better and prepare them for a great semester.
