Artboard%201@3x-82.png

The ECSD All-City Music programs offer band and choral enrichment experiences for students in grades 7-12. Each of the four ensembles runs for a full school year (September-June), meet for weekly rehearsals, participate in two main concerts per year and engages in various camps, festivals, and performances. Students participating in the high school programs (All-City High School Choir and Senior All-City Band) receive 5 credits per year. The success of these programs is largely dependent on the commitment made by applying members. Students enrolled in All-City Music Programs are expected to be part of their school music programs, where available.

The main goals of the programs include:1653078793935.png

  • improving vocal/playing technique
  • performing a wide variety of repertoire
  • developing a deeper understanding of music theory and history
  • promoting musical excellence
  • engaging in positive social-emotional experiences
  • deepening and expressing faith through music

Further to these curricular goals, the impact of engaging in an in-depth musical study is far-reaching, positively impacting the social-emotional, academic, and spiritual growth of students.
