Calibre General Music Classes

Music is a powerful and primary form of expression for the human spirit in every culture; the heart, soul, and voice of the people.  Through Music, people are able to integrate other academic disciplines, to develop reading and language skills, to gain greater mathematical understanding and to experience the characteristics of other cultures.  Music educates the whole child.

Calibre students will be a part of organizing or performing in the Winter Concert every December.  The students at Calibre Academy are all talented and also have an opportunity to be a part of the Calibre Variety Show at the end of the year.

Calibre Academy Winter Concert

Each December, the Calibre Academy Music Department presents the Winter Concert in the gymnasium.  The Program showcases both the instrumental and vocal talents of our students and is guaranteed to add to your holiday spirit.  The evening includes concerts throughout the night featuring all kindergarten through fifth grade classes, the Calibre Choir, and the Calibre Band.  Calibre Academy invites parents, family, and friends to our Winter Concert.
