Middle & High School Music
The Upper School has five musical ensembles: the middle school band, the high school band, the middle school choir, the high school choir, and Shir Madness a cappella choir. In addition to preparing for performances, students study music theory and literacy, and learn repertoire grounded in contemporary secular, Jewish, and multicultural music. Students can also take classes in keyboard and guitar, popular music, and songwriting. Our music students have performed on the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, the Nationals Stadium, and the Israeli embassy, as well as during Friday Kabbalat Shabbat performances, annual concerts, Arts Chai-lights and Daniel Pearl World Music Day, and school musical productions.
