Performing Arts

The performing arts are a vibrant part of student life at Shady Hill. In 2013-2014, we will offer ensembles for Jazz Band, Chorus, Orchestra, and Drama at various age levels. Please contact Performing Arts Department Chair, Darin Goulet if you have specific questions about an ensemble, or about 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 one of our performing arts ensembles. Students in all ensembles can expect to perform at 1-2 school assemblies or other special events during the year.

Read about our Performing Arts 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. Students in grades VII and VIII also have Music and Drama options within our Arts Electives program.

Shady Hill’s performing arts program seeks to teach all students to be creative and confident young musicians and performers in a multitude of musical styles. Performing is encouraged at every age and ability level.

We may also be able to connect you with off-campus private teachers of various instruments. Interested families should contact Darin Goulet (darin_goulet@shs.org).
