The St. Sebastian's alumnus stopped by Karl Grohmann's music classes on March 6 to talk with students about his career in country music and life on the road.
St. Sebastian’s has always been committed to the idea that a strong fine arts program is an indispensable element of a well-rounded education. When students engage in the arts, they learn valuable lessons about themselves and about life, lessons that they simply could not learn in any other way.
Students are encouraged to draw, to paint, to shape and form, to act, and to make music. Some write and direct plays; others build sets or work on sound and lighting. Perhaps more than any other department, Fine Arts is inextricably linked to the extracurricular life of the School, as boys develop new skills in the classroom and hone those skills further through various club activities.
