Whitefield Annual Student Art Show, a celebration of the visual arts, was held on April 4. The evening event featured art exhibits in the Lower School Student Activities Center (LSSAC), Middle School, and Upper School. The jazz band, concert band, orchestra, and Lower School Chorale performed at various locations around campus. The evening concluded with a sneak peek performance of “Shrek the Musical Jr.” by the Middle School drama students.
