Asheville School Fine Arts Students

Asheville School’s fine arts students are thrilled to have the opportunity to perform at the newly renovated Asheville Art Museum. Their “Amid Rugged Mountains” performance is on Monday, Nov. 18 from 6:15 to 7 p.m. in downtown Asheville.

“We are so grateful for the incredible resource our relationship with the Asheville Art Museum provides Asheville School students,” said Kathy Leiner, Chair of Asheville School’s Fine Arts Department. “We are very excited to share our talented Fine Arts students with the greater Asheville community in the beautiful new space ​during the inaugural month.”

The evening program will feature Asheville School’s Handbell Ensemble and Chorale. Musical selections include shape-note hymn tunes from William Walker’s Southern Harmony. The music program is complemented by an original choreographed work inspired by our current exhibition, Appalachia Now!, by Asheville School dance students.

Preceding the evening program, Asheville School students are popping up in the Exhibition Halls. As you visit Appalachia Now!, enjoy interacting with visual arts students sketching after the works on view, or catch an impromptu spoken word performance. Pre-programs take place from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and are free for Museum Members or included with admission.
