Canterbury Shines at FAME

Since 1987, student performances and artwork have been showcased at Fort Wayne's FAME Festival. The festival includes student art displays, workshops with guest musicians, dancers, and visual artists. FAME stands for the "Foundation for Art and Music in Education," and its mission is to foster and perpetuate creativity through multicultural arts education.

Canterbury School participated in FAME the weekend of March 11-12 in three different areas: orchestra, choir, and visual art.

Visual Art

Canterbury Lower School and Middle School 3D art classes displayed more than 150 pieces of 2D and 3D pieces of art. Two students received awards (see below).

Olivia Boone earned the Teacher's Choice Award. Her work will be on display at the Rolland Arts Center at the University of St. Francis from May 21 - June 29.


Canterbury Children's Choir performed "True Colors" and "Color a Rainbow of Love." Soloists who performed include: Marie-Elizabeth Montez-Gordon, Ambika Singh, Violet Madarang, and Maggie Sharpe.


Grade 5 Strings performed as part of the FAME Festival as an ensemble. Students performed a variation of a well-known Hoosier theme, "Skip to my Lou" and another highlight was "Batman Meets Bowman."
