St. Bernard is proud to offer a diverse and burgeoning Fine Arts program. What began several years ago with just a few students has grown into programs which offer a strong appreciation for the arts and are open to students of all talent levels.
St Bernard offers three different choir options to best match the skills of those interested students. The choir offerings are:
Middle School Choir – A Choir for 7th and 8th grade students geared to teach the fundamentals of reading music and getting then ready to participate in the more advanced choir options.
Church Choir – this high school aged choir is the largest group on campus. As you can guess from the name the church choir sings for the school masses as well as at schools annual Christmas concert and the Bloomin Fest.
Chamber Choir – A select group of church choir members, selected through an audition process, who are chosen to preform not only at the annual concert and festival but also at other special events. This is St. Bernard’s most elite choir.
St. Bernard offers 3 different bands, weather a beginner or an expert we encourage all students to get involved!
Beginner Band – open to students of any grade, 7th -12th, who want to learn an instrument. We believe a student is never too old to try something new.
Concert Band – St. Bernard’s largest band this group plays traditional arrangements and plays at several showcase type events through the school year.
St. Bernard Jazz – The school’s most advanced band made up of usually upper classman and selected by audition only St Bernard Jazz plays a wide variety of music and performs throughout the year getting the opportunity to represent the school in different venues.
