Middle School Band and Orchestra Overview
JSerra Catholic High School proudly announces the launch of the JSerra Arts Academy, a new after-school arts program for middle school students.
In this year's pilot program, students currently in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade have the unique opportunity to work with JSerra faculty and high school mentor students in our Band and Orchestra program. We will be offering both a beginning level (no previous musical experience required!) and an intermediate/advanced level for students with at least one year experience on a band or orchestra instrument. Students can learn to play a woodwind, brass, or string instrument.
The Band and Orchestra program will meet two days per week (tentatively Monday and Wednesday afternoons, beginning level from 4:00 to 4:50 p.m. and intermediate level from 5:00 to 5:50 p.m.) starting November 13, 2023. Practices will culminate in a performance as part of JSerra’s Arts Showcase Festival on May 4, 2024.
We highly encourage parents to complete the interest form on this page be kept in the loop about this program as it rolls out! SAVE THE DATE: There will be an Information Night on Wednesday, October 25 at 6:00 p.m. in the JSerra Music Room (room 3116). In the meantime, please reach out to Mr. David Amrein, Performance Arts Department Chair and Orchestra Director
