King is honored to be chosen to participate in the American High School Theatre Festival in 2019 for the second time as we were selected to perform in 2016. King is one of only 40 schools across the country selected to perform.
At King School, our students are exposed to many forms of creative expression and encouraged to pursue an artistic passion or discover a new one.
King’s Performing Arts program which includes theater arts and music, offers students the opportunity to make personal and cultural discoveries by participating in a creative, disciplined and collaborative process. Through a structured communal process, students develop self-confidence, perseverance, imagination, reflective thinking, and intuition.
The Visual Arts program at the King School stresses the importance of original creative thinking and personal artistic expression. Students learn to use and manipulate a wide range of media and techniques through assignments that are age appropriate yet challenging.
King’s stunning state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center (PAC) is an enviable setting for these creative pursuits. The lobby of the (PAC) doubles as extraordinary exhibition space for students, professional artists, and alumni.
In March when Grade 4 student Ryan Shih stepped onto the stage at Lincoln Center to perform Chopin's Waltz in A Minor, he kept his cool. Despite being just 10 years-old, this was not his first time in this spotlight competing in the Concert Festival International Competition so he knew what to expect.
King is excited to host its fourth El Sistema Residency, in which talented musicians from the Baltimore OrchKids, Bravo Waterbury, Archipelago Project, and Stamford's PROJECT MUSIC programs collaborate with King's Middle School and Upper School students for an intensive music workshop.
Our US students presented 'Into the Woods' last weekend and it was a wonderful production which featured over 40 of our US students and a 16-piece professional orchestra.
