“I sing for every time I couldn’t put my feelings into words and music was the only way to express myself.”

– Kaitlyn Uptain


Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy (GPFAA) is a multifaceted fine arts school, serving grades 6-12, centrally located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.  The school was established to meet the needs of students wishing to study fine arts disciplines with an equal emphasis being placed on studying advanced academics.  The school was opened in 2013 with an enrollment total of 383 students participating in 7 strands – visual arts, vocal music, dance, jazz band, orchestra, mariachi, and theatre.

In six years since its inception, the energy, talent, and dedication of the students has exploded.  The program has nurtured the lives of the students and is consistently ranked among the top choirs in Texas.  GPFAA’s high school vocal music strand consists of 74 students participating in six performing ensembles.

The Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy Singers consists of advanced 9th-12th grade vocalists and is the top mixed ensemble, committed to excellence within a diverse choral curriculum.  The GPFAA Singers have been consistent UIL sweepstakes award winners and have been named best-in-class and grand champions at choral festivals across the United States.

The choir excels in part as a result of the outstanding music instruction give in GPISD elementary, middle, and high schools taught by highly motivated choral faculty and music specialists.  Joel Duarte and Candice Maughan serve as the directors of the 2019 Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy Singers.  The directors, along with GPISD, are very excited and honored to share this performance with their students.
