A Vision for the Future
The faculty of the Anderson High School Performing Arts Departments are once again embarking on a major push to improve our teaching and performance spaces. We strongly believe that these shared spaces should reflect the quality of our performances and the degree of excellence our students achieve.
In 2022, the generosity of many alumni and parent supporters combined to give us
a fresh and modern look to the lobby of our beloved Titus Auditorium, one that honors our rich history, thanks our patrons, and recognizes the current students who share their tremendous talents with us year after year.
Now we are moving our focus to the various classroom spaces we use every day. Technical and facility improvements are needed for every Department, and we need you—parents, alumni, community partners, and patrons of the arts—to help us make this vision a reality. Help us bring our teaching spaces into the modern age.
The Richard Wesp Perfoming Arts Wing
Of course, the Performing Arts Departments are more than must Titus Auditorium. The Vocal Arts, Band, Orchestra, and Theatre & Film departments each have specialty spaces, including classrooms, storage facilities, dressing rooms, and the Black Box Theater.
We have diverse needs, but all share the same vision: to provide the highest quality education to our students, with facilities that allow us to meet their needs and encourage their dreams. Our goal is high, but so are the skills and aspirations of our students.
Our goal for 2024 is to raise $25,000 to improve all teaching and classroom spaces in the Richard Wesp Performing Arts Wing.
