High School Arts Conservatory Loses $80,000 Grants

Many Passions, One Dream

By APAC, 2012-02-21
As the old avant-garde makes way for the new classics, Anaheim Performing Arts Conservatory Fundraising Gala will celebrate the music, dance, and glamour that defines Hollywood and Broadway. Featuring the talents of Disney and local professional theatrical performers, AHS Alumni, as well as current Anaheim High School students, and our newly formed “Supernova” performance ensemble; this elegant semi-formal evening is sure to inspire and entertain.

Beginning at 6:00 pm with light hors d’ouvres and a silent auction of themed gift baskets, gift vouchers for local theaters, restaurants, and services, the party will move into the theater at 7:30 pm for a stage performance that is sure to be both captivating and uplifting.

About APAC
Anaheim Performing Arts Academy or APAC is celebrating its third year in their California Partnership Academy Program at Anaheim High School. Funded in part, through a grant from the California Department of Education and in collaboration with community partners and advisory board members from McCoy-Rigby Entertainment, Disneyland, Orange County Performing Arts Center, The Chance Theater, South Coast Repertory Theater, CSU Fullerton, and Cypress College: Anaheim High School students will have the opportunity to train for future careers in the arts through highly respected dance, drama, and music programs at AHS.

A recent performance of the musical Big Time.

We have joined forces with our ROP Woods, Fashion, and Graphic Designs Programs to create the first Performing Arts Conservatory in the Anaheim Union High School District. By training and working side by side with industry professionals and university faculty, students can choose to focus heavily in one arts discipline, on technical theater, or their desired workplace.

With budget cuts and the revisiting of fund allocations, our governor has referenced the removal of funding for all California Partnership Academies and re-allocating the money to the general fund for schools. If our governor follows through, then our conservatory will lose $80,000 and the GALA Fundraiser will be our sole source of income to fund all types of opportunities for our students.

Examples include but not limited to-
Field trips that are project-based learning experiences to tie history, english and the arts curriculum together:
Freshmen to MOLAA Museum of Latin American Art
Sophomores to Holocaust Museum
Juniors to the Grammy Museum
Seniors to Nixon Library

Our new "Supernova" (glee group) was formed (performing ensemble to represent APAC in the community)

Our first junior/senior showcase recital with artist/professionals and agents will take place in June

Portable professional Sound and wireless microphone system as well as LED lighting system was purchased to convert non-theatrical space into a performing space
