Cathedral Arts Project



The vision at Cathedral Arts is for every child to have access to a well-rounded, arts-rich education that endows his or her spirit with the imagination, self-confidence and strength of character that inspires great leadership and a will to succeed. Cathedral Arts has over 1,000 students participating in afterschool classes at 25 schools and community centers throughout Jacksonville. Our students receive twice-weekly instruction in visual arts (painting, drawing, and mixed media), drama (acting and playwriting), dance (ballroom, jazz, modern, ballet, and West African), and music (violin, band, percussion, and chorus), culminating in our annual Showcase of the Arts.

The Cathederal Arts Percussion Ensemble is striving to build a solid foundation not only in percussion technique, but in sight reading skills as well. These young musicians from local elementary schools demonstrate their ability to sight read music at several levels, while also displaying the solid foundation in technique and musical understanding which they are mastering in their classes.

The Cathedral Arts Advanced Strings Ensemble is comprised of violin students that have played and studied the violin for a number of years. The instructional program focuses on all aspects of music including sight reading, memorization, improvisation, proper playing technique, and concert etiquette. Twenty six performing students showcased their individual skill and talent at The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens with a variety of solos. The students ended the performance with a demonstration of ensemble teamwork and were warmly applauded by an audience of parents, teachers, principals and the Museum’s general visitor.
