Beginning and intermediate/advanced band is offered on a regular weekly basis for grades 5-8 during the school day at St. Anthony. Kennedy Catholic High School provides the instruction under faculty member, Frances McKamey.
Band students learn the basics of music, develop the skills to play a traditional band instrument, as well as experience the pride felt in belonging to a school performance group. Music is a great channel to enhance self-esteem.
The highlight of the academic year is the annual Band Festival. All the band members of the eight Catholic elementary schools join forces with the Kennedy Catholic Band for a fun-filled evening of music at the high school in May. The Honor Band and a summer band program are also additional opportunities for our young musicians.
