if you have specific questions about an ensemble or how to sign up your child for involvement in the performing arts program. Grade III - VIII students are strongly encouraged to be involved and join the in school performing arts ensembles. Students in all ensembles can expect to perform at 1-2 school assemblies or other special events during the year.
All students in Grades VII and VIII will participate in a half-year Performing Arts Ensemble in 2012-2013 — Chorus, Wind Ensemble, or String Orchestra. Shady Hill will provide rental instruments as needed to students in these ensembles. In addition, students in Grade VIII have the opportunity to be involved onstage and/or backstage in the Grade VIII play. Central Subject teachers, along with music faculty, create dramatic plays and experiences in their classrooms for grades B through VII.
