Performing Arts Center





The Independence Bank Performing Arts Center is a District facility of Graves County Schools. Though located at the corner of Graves County High School, the IBPAC serves each of our six elementary schools in addition to GCHS, GCMS, and Gateway Academy. We host numerous training events, meetings, and seminars throughout the year, but the heart of the IBPAC is our Fine Arts students and staff. The yearly calendar will feature many free, public concerts and performances, including our middle school, and elementary schools, though it is utilized most often by our GCHS Fine Arts department. Ensembles from the high school include: Concert Band, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Treble Choir, Chamber Choir, Music Theater, Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, and many others! Our gallery features beautiful creations from our GCHS Art students. Keep up with the IBPAC on social media for frequent updates on upcoming events. You may also view our list of Season Events with ticketing information, and calendar dates below. We look forward to seeing you!
