Extracurricular Music

Music / Choral 
Involvement in concert band and concert choir gives the serious musicians an opportunity to take center stage. Local events include "Performing Arts Night" and the "Kiwanis Music Festival" as well as other events as they come up. In the spring of 2014 the Band and Choir participated in the "70th Anniversary of DDay" event in collaboration with the local Legion. These groups compete provincially, nationally, and internationally.

Jazz Band / Jazz Cats
Jazz band is for those music students who want to challenge themselves and take their music to new "jazzier" levels. The jazz choir, called the Jazz Cats, is for vocal musicians to sing and scat jazz tunes
