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.

  • Bradley Backstage: Mr. Gus & Blue Bus

    Hop on the bus, Gus! Award-winning honky-tonk bluesman Erik Ray Gustafson (aka Mr. Gus) is teaming up with local folk-rock-bluegrass-reggae-funk-and everything in between band Blue Bus for a very special Bradley Backstage show. Blue Bus, who get their name from their rehearsal space on a remodeled blue bus, will recreate an "evening on the bus" in our alternative performance space at the LHE/PAC. Over the last 30 years as a professional musician, "Mr. Gus" has established himself as somewhat of a musical anomaly. He plays the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, 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 including old country, 1960s rock, jump & swing, jazz, and folk. What happens when two acts with such eclectic sounds collide? Join us on April 27th to find out! Bradley Backstage concerts "flip" the theater and seat the audience on stage with the performers, creating a much more intimate and unforgettable live concert experience. Ticket proceeds will benefit the Fryeburg Academy Music Program.

  • Met Opera Live in HD: Cendrillon

    “Glorious,” raved the New York Times when Joyce DiDonato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. “Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.” Now, for the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production. Please note there will not be a catered lunch before the opera, but we will have coffee and light snacks available during intermission. Estimated run time - 2 hrs 50 mins. The lobby and box office will be open at 12:00 pm. Seating will begin at 12:30 pm.
