Falmouth Academy Community Series

Falmouth Academy launched its Community Series in 2001 with a talk by Atlantic correspondent Robert Kaplan. Since then scores of speakers, performers, authors, artists, and scientists have shared their experiences and expertise with our audiences. The presentations, which celebrate community, are supported in part by the Woods Hole Foundation.

Community Partnerships

Skylark in Concert

Grammy-nominated Skylark, “the cream of the American crop” (BBC Radio 3), is a premier vocal ensemble of leading American vocal soloists, chamber musicians, and music educators. Skylark’s dramatic performances have been described as “gripping” (The Times of London), “exquisite...thrilling” (Gramophone Magazine), and “awe-inspiring” (Boston Music Intelligencer). With “some of Boston’s best singers” (Boston Globe), the voices of Skylark “can sway you softly into calm and then all but throw you across the room with sheer harmonic force” (Thought Catalog). Learn more about upcoming performances at Falmouth Academy and purchase tickets here.

Film Falmouth

Film Falmouth screens independent films monthly throughout the fall, winter, and spring at Falmouth Academy. The series is supported in part by grants from the Cape Cod 5 Charitable Foundation Trust, the Falmouth Fund of the Cape Cod Foundation, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Falmouth Chorale

Falmouth Chorale is comprised of 100 active singers who love singing choral music and performing at community and private events. For more information about upcoming performances at Falmouth Academy and other venues, please visit the Falmouth Chorale website.

WH DIVERSITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE

In 2004, the leaders of six Woods Hole science institutions signed a memorandum committing their institutions to work together to attract and retain a more diverse workforce. That memorandum established the Woods Hole Scientific Community Diversity Initiative. The initiative in turn established a diversity advisory committee (DAC) to make recommendations as to how the institutions can make the village a more diverse, more inclusive community. Falmouth Academy is proud to be an associate member of the DAC. Click here for information on DAC initiatives and events.

Chase the Turkey 5K Fun Run

For over 20 years, Falmouth Academy has sponsored a Thanksgiving Day fun run through the woods to benefit the Falmouth Service Center. It is open to all ages and abilities and the route will follow Falmouth Academy's new cross-country course. 100% of proceeds go to the Falmouth Service Center.
