• Boyce Music Ensemble Information

     
     
    Welcome to our Boyce Music Ensemble Information Page!
     
    Interested students are able to participate in one, two, or all three of our music ensembles at Boyce. Instrumental lessons occur during the school day as a pull-out lesson while group rehearsals take place either before school or during Pride Time/after school (depending on the ensemble).  The ensembles, directors, rehearsal times, and the December concert rehearsal/performance dates for each are listed below. Parents of students who are interested in registering for one or more of our ensembles should click on the links on Mr. Madge, Mrs. Shoemaker, or Mrs. Schetley's teacher pages to register. Please be sure to sign up for the appropriate director's "Remind" Notifications (for Band, Chorus, Musical Theater, and Orchestra), as well, to stay up to date on concert and rehearsal information. We look forward to another great year of music-making here at Boyce!
     
    Interested in learning more about our programs? Do you have questions? Need help finding a carpool group? Please plan on attending our Boyce Music Ensemble Information Session before 4th Grade Move Up Night as well as prior to Open House in the Boyce Theater from 6:00 - 6:45 p.m. to meet all three directors as well as learn the answers to commonly asked questions/concerns! We look forward to seeing you there!
