Music is a big part of life at St. Margaret's, and our program suits girls with a variety of interests and talents. The Music Department is equipped with a variety of instruments, including a grand piano, practice rooms, a Music Library, and is well-suited for both group and private instruction. Our Treble Choir receives basic theory, vocal pedagogy, and exposure to music from Classical, Romantic, Modern and Popular styles. This class is open to students in any grade level. The Ensemble offers select students an opportunity to work at a proficient level in grades 9-12.
Each year, we stage a major theatrical production that involves a large part of our student community in key rolls, including as student directors, actors, and crew. The Drama program uses our music studio as well as a mirrored dance studio for rehearsal space, and the wings of our stage are used as a staging area for props and technical equipment.
Willy Wonka Jr. was a standout show!
Our 2020 winter musical, Willy Wonka Jr., engaged over 60 SMS students, staff and local children in staging three performances for the public, and one show for our local elementary students. There was hardly an empty seat in the house. It was a great opportunity to show the talents and skills in the performing arts at St. Margaret's.
