Best of 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, we’re taking some time to reflect on the many wonderful moments at Lundstrum Performing Arts this past year. From performances, rehearsals, gatherings and masterclasses, 2018 has been full of exciting and unforgettable experiences, and as we reminisce we can’t say enough how thankful we are to be a part of such a vibrant community. To all students and faculty, volunteers and families, our board, staff and partners—thank you! We are here because of you and cannot wait to start another year together.

But before we do, let’s take a look back:
