All Saints Academy Music Programs
The beginning band is made up of 4th graders that are trying band for the first time, as well as 5th graders that are starting out on a different instrument. The students participate in one lesson (individual) or sectional (group lesson) per week, depending on the number of students in the band. We also meet once a week for full band practice. The students perform three times throughout the year - the Christmas Concert in December, Solo contest in February, and the Spring concert in May.
The concert band is made up of 5th-8th graders that are already proficient on their instruments (they have completed the beginning band class or take private music lessons). The students participate in one sectional, or group lesson, during the week, and we meet twice a week during concert band class to practice as a full group. These students perform several times throughout the year - concerts, parades, solo contest, organizational contest, and pep band events.
The jazz band is made up of 5th-8th grade students, and students are chosen based on an audition process. We meet once or twice a week, depending on the time of year. The music that these students perform is usually more challenging that the concert band repertoire. The jazz band performs at the Christmas concert, the Spring concert, and occasionally at special community events.
The chorus is made up of 6th-8th grade students. We meet once or twice a week, depending on the time of year. The students perform three times throughout the year - the Christmas concert, group contest, and the Spring concert. This group also leads the singing at many of our all school masses.
