    Music Department

    The Music Department consists of choral and instrumental groups. General Chorus is for all sixth, seventh and eighth grade students who wish to participate. From this group students are permitted to audition for Choralations. This group is composed of 75 talented students. Once a student becomes a member of Choralations, they may then audition for the two select groups: Girls Ensemble and Select Singers. The Girls Ensemble is comprised of 40 girls and the Select Singers is a small mixed ensemble of 24 voices.

    Our Instrumental Department is comprised of the Marching Band, Sixth Grade Band, Seventh and Eighth Grade Bands, the Orchestra and the Jazz Band. Any student may play in the band after meeting with the Director. In order to perform in the Jazz Band, students must audition.

    The Music Department rehearses in a large ensemble setting before school and through small sectional rehearsals during the school day. The Music Department gives the annual Winter Concert in December and a separate Spring Concert. Different ensembles from Beverly Hills Middle school can be seen at the annual Gala given by the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center each January, local retirement homes, annual holiday parades, festivals and our own Jazz and Choral festivals. Many of the performing Ensembles have received First Place trophies and the highest rating of Superior at local competitions and Festivals.
