In addition to general music classroom instruction, all students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades have the opportunity to participate in choirs, bands and orchestras. The Middle School Music Department offers the following ensembles which practice outside of the regular school day and perform in concerts throughout the school year. Most ensembles are open to all middle school students, except for a few that are open by audition.

The 2015-16 Rehearsal Schedule, plus details about enrollment and transportation for all ensembles, can be viewed or printed here.
