Performing Arts Institute
June 29 - August 10, 2014
Summer is the season when serious students of music, dance and theater are free to immerse themselves in the arts; to learn and to grow, to practice and rehearse, to observe and participate. It is a time, as well, for these students to bond with peers and professionals who share their passion and support their goals – people who “speak the same language” on every level. Because attending a summer arts program can be such a life-changing experience, it is important to select the right program.
We encourage students who are searching for a quality summer arts program to factor in four key elements to the decision-making process:
• The caliber of the faculty and guest artists
• The number of daily contact hours with the faculty
• The performance standards of the ensembles in which the student will perform.
• The quality of program offerings
At the Performing Arts Institute, we have developed the kind of program in which students can nurture their talents and grow as human beings. The following pages describe the content of PAI’s program: its high-caliber teachers (all of whom have passed the strictest FBI and State of Pennsylvania backround checks and clearances), its dedication to in-depth study, its performance schedule and its commitment to students. We are a community, each member supportive and inspired by the other. I invite you to meet our community and examine our program. Our CD, along with the sound samples on the PAI Web site, will allow you to hear the high quality of our ensembles. We are proud of PAI’s performance standards and unabashedly invite comparison with other summer programs.
We hope that our web site successfully communicates the remarkable spirit of the Performing Arts Institute. Please join us for our 2014 season!
