Students in grades First through Eight who wish to share their vocal talents may participate in choir. Under the direction of the music teacher practices are held after school and/or during recess period. The choir participates in music at every Friday liturgy, at special concert performances, and at nursing homes, and other venues around the Chicago area. Students in choir are given the chance to Cantor at Mass and play instruments. Performing in choir develops self-confidence and leadership skills, as well as preparing students to participate in high school choral groups.
HAND BELL CHOIR
7th and 8th Grade Students participate in the Hand Bell Choir. The choir performs at the Christmas Concert and at other times during the year. Contact our Music Director Mrs. Duncan for information.
BAND AND PIANO
Band For Today offers group lessons to students. Our students in grades Four through Eight receive instruction once a week during school with half hour group lessons. Band For Today offers a positive, upbeat, creative environment for our students. Instrument Rentals are offered through this program.
Students perform at two major concerts every year. The first concert is in December and features a variety of music selections. This is also the first concert for the beginning band students. The second concert is at the end of the school year. This concert features full band arrangements as well as showcasing trios, duets and soloists. Our students participate in the Band For Today Solo Contest, with many of our students winning gold, silver, and bronze medals for their performances.
Every spring our students in Fifth through Eighth grades are invited to participate in the school musical. Students sing, act, dance, and work behind the scenes as a member of the Tech Crew. Auditions are held in the Fall, and rehearsals begin after Christmas Break. Our students are encouraged to explore their talents, while gaining poise and self-confidence performing in front of standing room only audiences.
Past performances include The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland, Seussical the Musical, Disney's Camp Rock, Disney's High School Musical, Annie, Godspell, Time and Time Again, Pirates of Penzance, as well as many others.
In a magical kingdom beneath the sea, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home to live in the world above.
