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.

  • Met Opera Live in HD: L’Amour de Loin

    Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s breakthrough opera was described by the New York Times as “transfixing…a lushly beautiful score.” Commissioned by the Salzburg Festival, where it was first seen in 2000, it will now finally have its Metropolitan Opera premiere in a dazzling new production by Robert Lepage, featuring glimmering ribbons of LED lights that extend across the length of the stage and over the orchestra pit. Eric Owens is the knight on a quest of love and Susanna Phillips is his lover on the other side of the sea. Conductor Susanna Mälkki makes her Met debut. White Mountain Cider Company will be serving lunch in the lobby from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. Joe De Vito will be hosting his Opera Lecture Series on Tuesday, December 6th at 3:00 pm.

  • Encounters In Sound featuring Jed Wilson & Joe K. Walsh

    Bradley Backstage presents the fifth Encounters in Sound concert with pianist Jed Wilson. Wilson, best known for his appearances on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion and collaborations with singer/songwriter Heather Masse, will be accompanied by mandolinist/songwriter Joe K. Walsh. Roots music isn’t made in a vacuum. It’s the creation of a community, of a circle of friends, of a teacher and a student. It’s something to be passed back and forth to be treasured. As an acclaimed master of American roots music, Joe K. Walsh knows this better than most. He’s toured with countless artists, collaborated with other master musicians like Darol Anger and the Gibson Brothers, founded progressive stringband Joy Kills Sorrow in the early 2000s, and is currently on faculty at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. “The touch of sawdust in his vocals, or the buzz of the mandolin strings may hint at the deep rural roots of Walsh’s music, but what he’s creating now is a new kind of tradition.”
    $15-Adults, $5-Students/FA Faculty

  • Met Opera Live in HD: Nabucco

    The legendary Plácido Domingo brings another new baritone role to the Met under the baton of his longtime collaborator James Levine. Liudmyla Monastyrska is Abigaille, the warrior woman determined to rule empires, and Jamie Barton is the heroic Fenena. Dmitri Belosselskiy is the stentorian voice of the oppressed Hebrew people. White Mountain Cider Company will be serving lunch in the lobby from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. Joe De Vito will be hosting his Opera Lecture Series on Thursday, January 5th at 3:00 pm. 
    Estimated Run Time - 2: 44 (1 intermission)

  • Met Opera Live in HD: Roméo et Juliette

    When Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo starred opposite each other in Manon at the Met in 2015, the New York Times said, “the temperature rises nearly to boiling every time Damrau and Grigolo are on stage together.” Now they’re back as opera’s classic lovers, in Gounod’s lush Shakespeare adaptation. The production, by director Bartlett Sher, has already won acclaim for its vivid 18th-century milieu and stunning costumes during runs at Salzburg and La Scala. Gianandrea Noseda conducts the sumptuous score. White Mountain Cider Company will be serving lunch in the lobby from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. Joe De Vito will be hosting his Opera Lecture Series on Thursday, January 19th at 3:00 pm.

  • Bradley Backstage: Mr. Gus & The Latest Flames

    Fryeburg Academy math teacher by day, honky-tonk bluesman by night, Erik Ray Gustafson is bringing his award-winning act to Bradley Backstage! As you will see, Erik is somewhat of a musical anomaly. Over the last 30 years as a professional musician and entertainer he has, among other things, built up his "one-man-band" act. He plays the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, kick drum (or his new favorite: the cajon), hi-hat, upright bass and accordion—mostly simultaneously. Although he usually advertises his music as honky-tonk blues, it really encompasses many more genres. In his own words he says, "I love delta blues, Chicago blues, jump and swing, old country from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, 1960s rock, zydeco, a smattering of jazz and folk, polkas, and anything else that moves me at the time." As a special treat, "Mr. Gus" will be accompanied by The Latest Flames—a blues band made up of Fryeburg Academy student musicians. Bradley Backstage seats the audience on stage with the performers, creating a much more intimate and unforgettable live concert experience.
