While all Corpus Christi students are enrolled in General Music each year, there are many opportunities for students to get involved in performing arts at school! Below, you will find a list of performance ensembles available to students at Corpus Christi School!
Chorus - Mr. Nicholas Raspanti -- firstname.lastname@example.org
Instrumental Music: Orchestra -- Mrs. Donna Frisch -- email@example.com
The instrumental string music program offers weekly instruction in violin, viola, and cello in small group settings, as well as performance opportunities. Our winter and spring concerts are an integral part of the curriculum, and are a delightful musical experience for students and families alike. Demonstrations on orchestral string instruments are held every September in grades 2 through 4. However, students in the upper grades are welcome to join as well.
It is important to note that it is a documented fact that music stimulates the learning process, not just in music, but in other academic subject areas as well. It lays strong foundations for the development of good habits in self-discipline, and enhances positive self-esteem through the growth of personal achievements in mastering the skills needed to learn and perform a musical composition. Lessons are offered to Students in grades 2 through 8 on a rotating schedule throughout the school day. For more information please contact:

Director of Orchestral Studies
