Arts

Our Arts program was created to bring an appreciation of the fine arts into students' lives by discovering individual talents, encouraging original expression, and fostering creative discovery. On campus, Students experience live professional performances in the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, see professionally curated exhibits in the PACE Galleries, and display their own works of art in the Nadler Gallery.

Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center

Located on the historic campus of Fryeburg Academy, the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center is home to a variety of professional and student performances throughout the year. Since opening its doors in January 2009, the “LHE/PAC” has offered a state-of-the-art performance space for the Mount Washington Valley. From hosting renowned performers such as Peter Yarrow and Carbon Leaf to projecting live digital video streams of the Metropolitan Opera’s “Live In HD” Series, the LHE/PAC has become a cultural heartbeat of northern New England.

Funded in part by the Robert and Dorothy Goldberg Charitable Foundation.

  • 2016 Jazz Residency Concert: Karrin Allyson

    The Jazz Residency Initiative presents the 3rd Annual Fryeburg Academy Jazz Residency Capstone Concert, featuring five-time Grammy nominated vocalist-pianist Karrin Allyson with the award-winning Fryeburg Academy Big Band, Chorus, and Vocal Jazz Ensemble. Best known for her sophisticated and seemingly effortless musical interplay with her bandmates, Karrin currently spends two days out of three on tour, playing the major jazz festivals, concert venues and clubs of the U.S. and making repeated tours overseas — to Brazil, Japan, Australia and the great cities of Europe. "If there's a choir in heaven, someday the exquisite vocalist Karrin Allyson will lead it. She's such an otherworldly talent that the creator probably already has her on heavy rotation," (The Houston Press). 

    For those interested in providing additional support for this program, we are offering benefactor tickets for $50. These tickets grant you backstage access for a pre-show meet-and-greet with Karrin along with a CD for every two tickets purchased.

  • Comedian Juston McKinney

    With multiple appearances on The Tonight Show, his own Comedy Central Specials, and consistently selling out theaters, New Hampshire's own Juston McKinney is at the top of his game. When NH Magazine named him "Best of NH," they wrote, " The Granite State may have more famous comedians than you can shake a stick at (Seth Meyers, Sarah Silverman, and Adam Sandler, to name a few), but no one really "gets" New Hampshire humor like Juston McKinney. He's been using the state as his comic muse since he was humoring perps as a deputy sheriff on the NH/ME border in the 1990s. Juston was born in Portsmouth and currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two children, and two dogs.
