Graham Academy


Graham Academy, the performance arts training division of Gros Morne Summer Music (GMSM), is proud to be entering its fifth season this coming September. With new programs and opportunities being introduced each year, Graham Academy was established to support and perpetuate the legacy of musical excellence in Corner Brook as developed by the Chair of Gros Morne Summer Music, Dr. Gary Graham.

The Graham Academy, an initiative of Gros Morne Summer Music (GMSM), is proud to be founded based upon the rich history of Dr Gary Graham’s work here in Corner Brook.  The Graham Academy gets its name and spirit from Gary Graham, the chair of Gros Morne Summer Music from 2007 until his passing in June 2019, and the recipient of both the Order of Newfoundland and an Honorary Doctorate from Memorial University for excellence in music education and lifelong service to the arts.  Each initiative of the Graham Academy celebrates and supports the continuation of a different aspect of over forty years of Dr Graham’s teaching here in Corner Brook.


Located at 110 Humber Road just behind Immaculate Heart of Mary School, this beautiful historic building has become home to music and art, friendship and laughter for generations to come.


Layla has truly BLOSSOMED as a performer at the young age of 5 (almost 6)! Each time I see her on stage my mind is blown and I am so so grateful that she has this opportunity to explore her passions and enjoy the warm embrace of her musical theatre family.
