Arts Festival 2019

Performing Arts

The Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School Arts festival is held each May. The festival highlights visual art exhibits of portfolio work from freshmen to senior art majors. Students display their best artwork from a myriad of media, and work from photography and graphic design classes is also included. Art scholars exhibit their art work in the front lobby, seniors and juniors in the glass corridor, and sophomores and freshmen in the gold corridor. Awards certificates are presented by a local professional artist.

Following the visual arts display, the Arts Festival concert, presented in the Performing Arts Center, features our music ensembles including Glee Club, Chorale, Orchestra, String and Wind Ensemble, Girls with Guitars, the Mercy Melismatics, soloists and dancers, as well as selected narrators from Speech and Debate club. The Arts Festival concerts focus on a different theme every year, on which our music ensembles perform a varied selection of classical, Broadway and contemporary popular music and dance.

"We make room in our house for beauty, may we appreciate the care and graciousness of God the artist, who takes us beyond the pragmatic and the restrained and leads us into realms of extravagance and boldness, recognizing the power of color and form to open our eyes to new possibilities."
