Performing Arts Wing Dedicated

For more than 40 years, the name Pasquale Pascaretti was synonymous with performing arts in Fraser Schools. Mr. Pascaretti was a teacher, band director and Music Department Chair when he retired in 2015. He passed away in June 2023.

In honor of his legacy and impact at Fraser High School, the performing arts wing was dedicated as the “Pasquale A. Pascaretti Performing Arts Wing.” A plaque will hang next to the box office window.

Following the dedication ceremony, guests were treated to performances by the Metropolitan Detroit Chorale, Fraser Piano Studies students, performances from the high school musicals, Fraser Jazz Band and the Fraser Singers.

“We believe that this dedication will not only celebrate his memory, but also serve as a symbol of the love and strength that unites us as a Performing Arts family,” said Mrs. Karen Hagerty, piano studies teacher and a former student of Mr. Pascaretti’s.
