Grade Levels: 5-6
Advisor: Miss Young
Meetings: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8 a.m.
The purpose of the Advanced Band is to provide opportunities for intermediate band students to expand their skills and talents. Students are admitted to the ensemble by teacher recommendation and are expected to practice regularly and attend a weekly instrumental music lesson to remain in band. Three concerts are scheduled yearly and students may perform at other events as they arise.
Grade Level: 5
Advisor: Mr. Tucker
Meetings: Mondays (girls) or Wednesdays (boys) at 8 a.m. (September-May)
Advanced Chorus is open to all students in grade five. This large ensemble focuses its learning on performing a larger repertoire of music of many styles. The skill level spirals from the end of the beginning level chorus, with greater emphasis on more difficult rhythms and two-part singing. It is recommended that students try the Advanced Chorus before choosing to continue in the Middle School choral program. Chorus meets from September through May at 8 a.m. on Mondays for girls and Wednesdays for boys. We perform two concerts each year.
Grade Levels: 3-6
Advisor: Mr. Whalen & Mr. Jorgensen
Meetings: Thursdays after school for six weeks beginning the Thursday students return from the holiday break. Students leave school promptly at 3:20 p.m. and return to the school at 7:10 p.m. Parents are welcome to sign out their child at the mountain before 6:45 p.m.
Students receive small-group ski instruction based on their individual skiing ability. Participants get to ski at Willard Mountain with friends and make new friends at the same time.
