The music program starts from fourth grade and continues all the way through high school, with choir and orchestra start at fourth grade and with band starting at fifth grade.

He also conducts the 8th grade Concert band and 8th grade and High School Jazz bands. The two other conductors of the band are Robert Luce and Adam Chongris.

Famous quotes containing the words program and/or music:

    But one day he met a man who was a whole lot badder,
    And now he’s dead, and we ain’t none the sadder.
    —Administration in the State of Texa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    It was a poetic recreation to watch those distant sails steering for half-fabulous ports, whose very names are a mysterious music to our ears.... It is remarkable that men do not sail the sea with more expectation. Nothing was ever accomplished in a prosaic mood.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
