Recently, PA opened up their new Performing Arts Center, the PAC, to the public, by hosting several concerts. The Providence Band and Choir concert, as well as strings and other Middle School and Lower School concerts were performed in the PAC.
The PAC includes many chandeliers, a stage, a balcony, and many well-cushioned seats.
Students and parents love the new Performing Arts Center, and especially appreciate it over the Great Room. One PA mom, Mrs. Farnam, says, “Yes, it was overwhelmingly beautiful! I knew it would be beautiful but it was more breath taking than I had expected. Great seating too!” Another PA parent, Gregg Peppin, says, “The sight lines were better, the acoustics were crisper, and the seats much more comfortable. It’s a magnificent experience!”
One thing that makes this PAC different from that of other schools is the general feel of the building. As each of PA’s musical directors noted before each concert, the PAC should be respected because of the beautiful building it is.
This is also an exciting time for students. Many students are excited to have performed in the PAC.
Freshmen Ikemonso Ayika says, “Performing in the PAC was a great new experience, especially singing-wise with its great acoustics and beautiful designs along the theater/stage. I honestly can’t wait for the next performance in the PAC, especially when we have all the technology (all the lights, sound, etc.) prepared for our next performance there. It will truly be a wonderful experience!”
Students loved their first performance in the PAC, and are thrilled for the next one. This newest addition to the Providence Academy home truly makes PA a school like no other.
