In recognition of the school's 50th anniversary of racial integration, Asheville School plans to host three dynamic speakers who will discuss multicultural issues. The first of those speakers will be Gil Prince, long time member of the Asheville School Board of Trustees and one of the three first black students to enroll at Asheville School.
Asheville School students have participated in a range of activities to celebrate the United Nation's International Day of Peace. One of those activities included a Vespers service that featured students' reflections on peace through song, instrumentation, dance and written word.
This summer, Asheville School senior Mac Waters answered a call for scores for The Spontaneous Combustion New Music Festival, and his piece for solo flute was selected as one of five winners in the category from an international pool of composers.
In recognition of the School's 50th anniversary of racial integration, Asheville School invites you to hear three dynamic speakers who will discuss multicultural issues of today with our students, faculty members and alumni. We hope you will join us for these events throughout the school year.
