2015 WHS Fine Arts Gala Concert & Exhibition (and SILENT AUCTION!)

The 2015 Westborough High School Fine Arts Gala Concert and Exhibition

This event, sponsored by the Westborough Fine Arts Education Association, serves as a fundraiser to help fund district-wide programs and provide scholarships to graduating seniors.

This year’s Gala will be held on Thursday, April 30th at Westborough High School from 5:00 pm until approximately 9:30 pm.   The event will showcase the talents of over 500 students in Music, Theater, and Visual Arts.  Among the honors earned by Westboro ensembles this year are Gold and Silver ratings at the 2015 MICCA Festival and a Gold Key in the Scholastic Art Competition.

5:00-9:00 pm: Silent Auction! (ongoing). This year’s auction will also be available online beginning on April 23rd at the following link:


The live auction will end after intermission of the concert.

Complimentary appetizers and desserts will be served.

5:30-7:30 pm: Visual Arts display in the upper auditorium lobby with small ensembles performing in the upper and lower auditorium lobbies.

7:30 pm: Concert in the auditorium featuring all performing ensembles, including bands, orchestras, choruses and small groups.

The WHS Choirs will be performing as the Choral Union presenting a piece titled Everyone Sang. This piece was commissioned by the WHS Choirs with a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council. The piece was written just for WHS Choirs by Boston-based composer, Dr. William Cutter, and the world premiere of the piece will happen during the Gala Concert. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for our students. I hope you come and support your student and hear the world premiere of Everyone Sang.

Due to assigned seating in the auditorium, as well as high demand for tickets, it is recommend that you reserve your seats in advance of this performance.  Please note that this event is not included as part of the Family Concert Pass series.

For further information, contact Mr. Martin at martinc@westboroughk12.org.

About Westborough

Since its incorporation in 1717 as the 100th town in Massachusetts, Westborough has grown from a settlement of orchards and dairies into a dynamic community with a healthy mix of residences, wooded trails, and industry. Located 12 miles east of Worcester and 29 miles west of Boston, at the intersection of the Mass Pike, Route 495 and Route 9, Westborough's population of a little more than 18,000 residents enjoy extensive public services for all ages, and active recreation programs on its lakes, woodlands, and playing fields. Westborough High School was ranked 35th in Newsweek Magazine’s “America’s Top High Schools 2014” list, and the town has been cited by Money Magazine and CNNmoney.com as one of the “Best Places to Live” in the U.S.

Spurred by the advent of the train in 1834, and now with commuter rail service to both Boston and Worcester, Westborough has been home to diversified manufacturing, ranging from sleighs, straw hats, and boots in the past to computer and telecommunications equipment today. Westborough has also emerged as an important regional center for office development, with 35 percent of its employment devoted to the service sector.
