Music at Holy Family Catholic School is a long-standing and well-honored tradition that holds a special place in the hearts of our Parish and our school.
The Holy Family Music Department features a number of exciting and dynamic groups in which students can sing and play instruments to have fun, perform for friends and family, and glorify God with their gifts and talents.
Choir! For singers in 3rd grade and above, the Holy Family Choir offers an excellent opportunity to students in 3rd grade or above to sing and make music together. Advanced students will be challenged with leadership roles, while beginning students are given a comfortable and safe atmosphere to develop their voices. Younger singers are often welcome to join, but by audition only.
Bands! For students in 4th grade and above who play wind instruments or percussion, we offer two different groups - the Preparatory Band for beginners, and the Concert Band for the more advanced students. All players are welcome in the Preparatory Band, while the Concert Band requires auditions - as it plays challenging music and reads at a much faster pace. Both bands will perform throughout the year, with the Concert Band playing at the formal Spring and Christmas Concerts.
Percussion! For students in the 4th grade and above who play other instruments such as string guitar, piano or who have always wanted to learn percussion, Holy Family also offers a school jam group - Percussion Team. This after-school club learns the ins and outs of percussion instrumentation, notation, performance and style; and will also see guest speakers, teachers, workshops and clinics on numerous different styles. Percussion Team plays loud and often, offering a great opportunity for students to express their musical ideas and creativity.
