CFA Symposium Video

The Center For The Arts is SO much more than just a bunch of classes. Here, students get to work one-on-one with professionals in the industry and our annual Symposium day is a perfect example of that. Theatre and Musical Theatre students get a “field trip” right in their own hallways with some local professionals.
