Fountain School of Performing Arts was established in July 2014, by joining the Dalhousie University Department of Music and Department of Theatre. Funded by a generous $10 million donation by the Fountain family, it is the only university performing arts school east of Montreal, bringing a range of new opportunities to students of Music, Theatre and Film Studies.
