Since 2005, GIGS has teamed up with Young At Art (a local children's art program run by Nancy Altemus) to put on a community music and arts festival called Art Rocks! At the end of every school year, hundreds of young musicians, artists, and their families come together to watch GIGS students and teachers perform on eight different stages and be surrounded by the amazing artwork by the students of Young At Art.
In July 2020, our beloved and highly anticipated Art Rocks went virtual for the first time ever! Students from both programs had the opportunity to showcase their hard work and artistic accomplishments from home via photos and videos. Using over 100 student submissions and Nancy's beautiful original artwork, GIGS created an action-packed livestream celebration of music & art for families to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes.
