Our Mission in the Entertainment Unit is to continuously prepare students for lifelong appreciation of performing arts, whether as enthusiasts or professional artists by:
* providing ensembles designed to meet student needs wherever they are personally and professionally from year to year,
* studying the history of our musical art so that we can interpret the new with an educated viewpoint,
* supporting youth leadership and mentorship for a diverse student population,
* facilitating high quality performance opportunities for individuals and ensembles,
* focusing on building community through the arts.
