Arts & Music

Candlelight 2012
View More
Fine arts -- music, art, drama -- comprises a critical element in the journey to becoming a McCallie Man. Academically, students are required to take five semesters' worth of fine arts classes and can choose from more than 20 classes and subjects. But the school's commitment to the arts hardly begins and ends in the classroom setting.

The music department is home to a smattering of diverse musical groups, including a guitar ensemble, a wind ensemble, and numerous choirs. Every year, some 300 of the Upper School boys -- often more than half the student body -- participate in some aspect of Candlelight, McCallie's annual Christmastime musical event for more than 20 years.

ABOVE: Listen to some of the music-related audio files compiled from concerts, performances, and Chapel Talks.

Visual Arts classes at McCallie include basic and advanced courses in drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. The annual Art Catalog featured below is a published collection of select student artwork. McCallie's student artists participate in local and statewide juried exhibitions to allow them to be recognized and earn scholarships for their artwork.
