It’s the season for ensemble instrumental and vocal performances from our talented and inspiring students. This year marks a new beginning for our school music programs as we welcome three enthusiastic new teachers who join a collaborative team of music instructors.

As parents, we are generally attend our own children’s performances. This year, try something new: visit another school with your children. Parents of elementary and middle school students, this is a wonderful way to build connections with your future high school. Celebrate the students who have accomplished so much, and encourage your own students to think about their future performing arts careers!
