Students of all talents and musical abilities have the chance to make sweet sounds at GRS. Our twice-annual Coffee House, an open mic tradition, offers students a stage for sharing their jams with the world. Theatrically-inclined GRS students have multiple opportunities to show their stuff on stage, from our annual spring musical to one-act performances.
