• The arts play a prominent role at Garrettford Elementary School. Concerts include the chorus, as well as instrumental concerts featuring the 100 plus students who receive weekly instrumental lessons. Instrumental instruction begins in third grade and fourth and fifth grade musicians are invited to participate in the band and orchestra. We also have a tremendous choral program. Our Boys' Choir is a favorite group that performs throughout the year and boasts many students who have been selected to perform with the Philadelphia Boys' Choir. The Boys' Choir is especially proud of their relationship with the Mainliners, an area community barbershop group and are featured twice annually with the group. We also have an annual talent show featuring students, parents and faculty groups.
