The Academy activities conclude with the Academy Luncheon in the Curb Event Center at 11:30 AM on Friday. This event brings together the diverse experiences of the Academy week and reinforces the importance of arts education in classrooms across America. Each year at this event the Academy honors a Tennessee educator for their achievements in the arts. During the luncheon, the Academy Chorale, composed of Academy participants, is featured in performance. As the Academy ends its yearly session, the message that is sent to all participants clearly inspires and challenges them to live their calling to the fullest.
