 Music Performance & Production

​​​As students develop and progress through the rigor of the technical, emotional and social elements of music. We ensure that our students are ready for the challenges they will meet in post secondary education by requiring courses in music fundamentals and applied music. Our major ensembles include string orchestras, Jazz ensembles, wind ensembles, vocal ensembles as well as premier audition-only chamber ensembles. As performance is such an important aspect of the program, students will have numerous opportunities to be a part of solo and ensemble events and compe​ti​tions several times each year.
