Music and Arts

Tricia Panasci, Director of Music and Applied Arts

Welcome to the Mount Sinai Art, Music, and Drama homepage
.  At Mt. Sinai, we believe that the arts play an important role in the quality of life. The arts foster self-discipline, initiative, commitment, and a dedication to improvement that enables students to further develop their skills in creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Students involved in the arts also learn to collaborate with others and to communicate more effectively.  In our increasingly complex global society, acquiring these skills and habits is essential for our youth.  That is why we encourage all students to participate, in some capacity, in the many wonderful fine and performing arts programs we offer.

Please use the links on this page for more information related to art, music, and drama at Mt. Sinai.
