Summer Arts Festival

Arts Festival

2024 Summer Arts Festival

Students who attend the TASIS Summer Programs in Lugano have the opportunity to pursue a huge variety of performing arts offerings—including musical theater, singing, dance, body percussion, songwriting, filmmaking, and theater tech—under the direction of the best team in the business.

The culmination of their artistic pursuits are the Summer Arts Festivals, which are held in the final few days of each session. These vibrant celebrations of the arts offer students in all four divisions of the TASIS Summer Programs—the High School Program (HSP), the Middle School Program (MSP), Le Château des Enfants (CDE), and the Minnows—a platform to present their outstanding work to their parents, peers, teachers, and counselors.

Below you will find an archive of the performances and exhibitions from the Summer Arts Festival that was held at the end of session one.
