About us!….

Our Mission:

The CRLS Arts Committee is dedicated to supporting arts programming for students in the Visual and Performing Arts.  

Our goals:

  •   increase awareness of arts opportunities at CRLS and,
  •  encourage student participation.  
We do this through fundraising to benefit programs, volunteering at any and all arts performances and exhibits, and offering support to students involved in the arts. 

We endeavor  to be very active and involved in all events and performances helping with tasks such as ticket sales, ushering and providing food to the students during the very intense final week before the theatre productionsWe  help with publicity for all the openings, as well as fundraising. Each year we host an end of year “Celebrate the Arts” event to celebrate our students’ successes in the Arts and offer a tribute to graduating seniors (go to this link for more information on event).
The Arts are one of the true strengths of CRLS. In 2010 Boston Magazine named CRLS to the Honor Roll for the Arts and had this to say:
Cambridge Rindge and Latin School
In these lean times, many high schools have trouble funding a single dedicated theater or music teacher. Not Cambridge Rindge and Latin, which has 16 (yep, 16!) performing and visual arts teachers, and a course selection to rival a small college. Dance troupe? Check. Lighting and set-design program? Yup. Darkroom? Two. The school has won the Massachusetts High School Drama Festival, an annual play competition, 14 times — a record. Through community partnerships, CRLS students get internships at Harvard’s A.R.T. and Central Square’s Underground Railway Theater. And when they graduate, they go onto the best: NYU, Emerson, and, of course, Hollywood.
