Fine Arts Honors Series

The RCS Fine Arts Honors Series is designed to celebrate the best of the Fine Arts in Rutherford County Schools, offer exceptional educational opportunities for students, and provide quality professional development for RCS Fine Arts Teachers.
The Series consists of four distinct events to occur throughout the school year: The RCS Theatre Showcase, The RCS Choral Festival, The RCS All-County Band, and the RCS Interactive Art Show. Each event features renowned guest artists to guide selected students through new artistic ideas and provide professional development for teachers. Selected students will also have an opportunity to perform or present their work at a public event (Dates and information about each event can be found below.)
RCS welcomes community support to keep this program available to the students and community of Rutherford County. If you or your organization are interested in investing in the RCS Fine Arts Honors Series, please contact Lindsay Halford at
