Kimball Union offers a full slate of academic courses and performance ensembles through which students explore and showcase their musical, theatrical, and dance talents. Through small and large scale departmental concerts, coffee houses, musicals, and plays, students practice, perform, and share with the community. Performers of all abilities are highly encouraged.
Our unique Ensemble Period time slot is a dedicated “sacred space” in the daily schedule free of conflict with other school activities that guarantees all students full access to music and dance ensembles.
The rich artistic community of the Upper Valley and nearby Dartmouth College supplements art programs at Kimball Union. Weekly trips to world-class performances at the Hopkins Center For The Arts are open to all students.
