EDUCATION MISSION OF THE FORUM

Our mission is to promote an arts education for local high school students by…inviting students to participate in master classes with FORUM performers and awarding scholarships for college level study in the arts.

Master Classes offer young musicians an opportunity to work with an experienced performer and receive feedback and support.

  • Master Classes offer young musicians an opportunity to work with an experienced performer and receive feedback and support. For the 2015–16 season, the Forum did not sponsor master classes, however youth were very involved in the first performance which was a collaboration of the Forum and the Don & Catherine Bryan Cultural Series, funded in part by a grant from the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau and the Outer Banks Community Foundation.

Helping Set Up!    About 12 area students from First Flight High School played key roles in load-in, wardrobe prep, costume changes, set changes, operating spotlights and the curtain for the Forum’s first performance, Pirates of the Penzance. This gave them a bird’s – eye view of putting on such an ambitious show which was a tremendous hit! r.

 

Scholarships are awarded each year to local high school graduates who are planning college majors in a subject related to the arts. These $1,000 awards are competitive, with winners selected on their academic achievement, participation in the arts and the strength of their personal recommendatio
