In Upper School, students may elect to participate in music courses that apply to an overall arts requirement. We believe that music learning is best experienced within the structure of an ensemble where students can collaborate musically. The ensemble offerings at the Upper School level include Concert Choir and Orchestra, which are open to all who wish to sing or play an instrument. These ensembles are college-prep section courses. In addition, students who are in Concert Choir may audition for Chamber Singers, which comprises two single-sex a cappella groups: Laurelei for girls and Hilltones for boys. Students who are in Orchestra may audition for the Chamber Ensemble or Jazz Band. All of these auditioned ensembles receive honors-level credit.
