Thank You Thursday

And, we're back! There was a small break over the holidays, but Thank You Thursday is here again!

Today we would like to thank the Fayetteville Public School system. They are always open to our visiting artists, professional development workshops, smART teacher programs and much more. The Fayetteville Public School system busses in many of their students to our hall every year to participate in the Colgate Classroom Series, sends teachers to our AWE Institute and opens their doors to performers for workshops with the students. 

Yesterday, two of the Blue Men and two of their musicians visited Fayetteville High School to teach a drum workshop to the students. Ramay Junior High brought some of their band students over to take part in the experience as well. The Blue Man Group members took the students through the audition process, and let some of them come up on stage to showcase their talents. The workshop was only an hour long, but the student's faces and comments showed their desire to stay all day!

Thank you to Mr. Barry Harper for making this day possible to the students of the Fayetteville Public Schools. We appreciate your love of the arts and the impact it has on your students!
