TASIS Delivers Outstanding Virtual Spring Arts Festival

Under the direction of TASIS Founder M. Crist Fleming, a passionate advocate of the arts, former faculty members Horst Dürrschmidt and Fernando Gonzales established the TASIS Spring Arts Festival in 1974. Held near the end of each school year, the festival is, in addition to a community-wide celebration of the arts, a final assessment for students in visual arts, theater, and music. 

While important safety measures prohibited us from holding the 2020 Spring Arts Festival in its traditional form, Visual Arts Department Chair Martyn Dukes and Performing Arts Department Chair Samantha Forrest were resolute that the show must go on, and they worked with a determined group of educators and a talented pool of student artists to provide our community with a variety of uplifting content from May 21–24.

The outstanding festival included collaborative songs and theatrical performances, a live dance concert, instrumental and vocal recitals, a virtual art exhibition, and more. Enjoy all of the inspiring work produced by our talented students and faculty members on our 2020 Virtual Spring Arts Festival page.
