Many Wyoming Seminary Upper School students take part in musical activities, focusing on either vocal or instrumental music — or sometimes being involved in both. The music department strives to offer opportunities for every level of experience. Advanced musicians participate in the prestigious Civic Orchestra or Jazz Ensemble, or the select Madrigal Singers. Students whom the directors deem capable of working in a small ensemble have the opportunity to play in a chamber group. Individual lessons are available from world-class faculty members, in addition to the main courses of study.
At the Lower School, Sem's music teachers are dedicated to nurturing a love for music, helping them grow as musicians and appreciative listeners. Music is included in many primary classroom lessons and activities. All students participate in three annual performance of vocal and/or instrumental music.
