Approximately 50 percent of Sem’s Upper School students take part in musical activities. Experienced musicians participate in the prestigious Civic Orchestra, jazz ensemble, or the select Madrigal Singers. Students whom the directors deem capable of working in an ensemble have the opportunity to play in a chamber group. Individualized lessons are available from a world-class faculty 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 to grow as musicians and appreciative listeners. Music is included in many primary classroom lessons and activities, and all students participate in three annual performances of vocal or instrumental music (or both)!
