CHOIR is an option for 4th through 8th graders. It is a no-cost, non-audition, extra-curricular school activity that is available for students who enjoy singing and want a greater challenge outside of their classroom. We sing songs in unison and parts, rounds and partner songs from a range of styles, cultures, and languages. The choir performs in the special school programs and takes a few different field trips to perform throughout the year. The students of the choir are also our music representatives at the TVCS all-student Mass that is held at the end of Catholic Schools Week. The Choir is scheduled to meet before school on Tuesdays and Fridays in the Library from 7:30-8:00am.
BAND is an option for 5th through 8th graders. It is a no-cost to participate, no audition, activity available to any student who is interested in playing a band instrument. We have a first-year (Beginning) band that meets twice a week during 2nd recess and part of lunch, and they focus on the basic techniques of performing in an instrumental ensemble - watching the conductor, playing in unison and homogeneously as a group, performing parts accurately, engaged breathing, and professional presentation.
We also have an Advanced Band that is made up of students who have played in Band for one or more years. Students in this group continue to build on the skills established during the first year. The bands perform in the school programs and take a few different field trips to perform throughout the year. The Advanced Band is scheduled to meet before school on Mondays and Thursdays in the Library from 7:30-8:00am.
