    Students have a number of opportunities to learn and cultivate talents, be creative and to take part in arts activities. The GISH Center for Performing & Creative Arts includes instrumental and vocal music, performing arts, visual arts and more.

    There is an opportunity for all students to be involved in the arts and develop their talents.


    Opportunities include marching band in the fall, three different concert bands in the spring, two jazz bands, two orchestras and a show band for each of the three show choirs.



    Vocal music opportunities include three show choirs and four concert choirs, plus Madrigals.



    The theater department has multiple opportunities for students to work on stage and off. With two theaters always in action, there are many chances to display student talents. An annual musical typically includes 130 students. In December, the department has an annual production of "A Christmas Carol." In the spring semester there are multiple student-directed one-act plays.



    GISH has an outstanding visual art department, allowing students the chance to explore both 2D and 3D opportunities. In house Gallery 9 puts student work on display year-round. Students in the department have earned GISH a local, state and national reputation for producing excellent work.
