Middle School students receive a more focused course of musical study. Sight-singing, rhythm, theory and vocal technique are at the core of the curriculum. In eighth grade, students may choose from a variety of course offerings including Music Fundamentals, Vocal Masterclass, Musical Theater and more. Students may choose to audition for the Madeleines, a chorus for fifth- and sixth-graders, or the Nightingales for seventh- and eighth graders. Handbell Choir and Orchestra are open to all Middle School students. A Ca-Bella is an elite a capella chorus for students in seventh through twelfth grade; Members are invited to join by audition. All of these groups perform frequently at school and in the community.
