Mrs L. Harvey (HOD)
We have a very active music department in The High School. Our school choir consists of approx. 50 members who take part in many different engagements. They have been in ‘UTV Choir of the Year’ and ‘Sing Carols’ for the BBC.
We were involved in the ‘Young Voices’ concert in the Odyssey Arena and sang in Down Cathedral as well as our usual yearly engagements.
We also had trips to Lamorlaye, France with the Ballynahinch Twinning Committee which were a great success.
We have also performed alongside the Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland in the Waterfront Hall, Belfast.
In the Music Department we offer tuition on the following intruments:
There are over 60 pupils who receive private tuition within school and many off these sit a graded exam at the end of the year via the ABRSM syllabus. There are also ensembles and band that rehearse on a regular basis.
