he fine arts have a vital place in the development of a Linsly student. Faculty and students display a positive feeling regarding their school and the various arts disciplines. Every year, the school hosts its Extravaganza, which is an entire school production featuring the participation of every student and faculty member. Throughout the year, upper school and middle school students display their acting talents in several theatrical productions.
Because we believe art of all kinds is essential to our school, students can take part in the arts through a class, a special school project or an extracurricular activity, ensuring everyone the opportunity to also participate in athletics, after school programs, volunteering and clubs. This approach means Linsly students do not have to choose between a part in a play, a seat in the orchestra or a position on a sports team.
The Linsly School offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of fine arts performance groups. The String Orchestra is comprised of talented students from both the middle and upper schools. This group, along with the Stage Band and middle school instrumental instruction, give Linsly students the opportunity to display their instrumental talents in a variety of ways. The Linsly Chorus provides vocalists an outlet for their abilities, and all middle school students perform vocally throughout the year. Theater arts courses allow students to express themselves, in a classroom setting, as performers or as "behind-the-scenes" assistants. Dance and speech instruction in the middle school build confidence and prepare the students as they become well-rounded members of the Linsly community.
