Performing Arts

Choral Opportunities

The primary responsibility of the choir is to provide music for the monthly First Friday Liturgies. However, the choir also participates in many all-school functions both in and out of the building, providing music for prayer services, concerts, and assemblies.

The choir, directed by Mr. Dan Farretta (SJS music teacher grades 4-8), rehearses once a week on Wednesdays from 2:40-3:20pm in the Music Room, beginning Wednesday September 28, 2022.  In addition to singing at the monthly masses, the choir is featured at other functions throughout the school year. This program is free of charge and students in grades 4-8 are welcome to participate.  
To sign-up email Mr. Farretta at with your student's name, grade, homeroom and best contact info.

Drama & Musical Theatre

The after-school drama program is designed to foster a love of the performing arts and give the students a positive theatrical experience in a supportive environment. Exposing students to the world of theatre is a positive experience that will enable them to "think on their feet" as well as creatively work in a supportive environment. Our hope is that this drama experience will not only improve the students’ imagination and boost their self-confidence, it will also develop a life-long appreciation for the arts as they become more aware of the world around them. The program is directed by our school’s music teachers.

Interested students in Grades 4-8 learn acting, singing and basic dance skills that are put together in rehearsal for an age-appropriate musical performance for all to enjoy! Each program is designed to expand the children’s ability as they grow more and more comfortable on stage.  More information and sign-up to come.

Concert Band

Paul Effman Music leads our band program. Students are grouped by instrument and level of performance. The band meets weekly for 30 minutes altogether, and then will additionally meet in small groups for lessons. The Saint Joseph School band will host two concerts throughout the year: the Christmas Performance and the Spring Concert.

Forms have been distributed to students, for more information visit here.

Instrument Lessons

To support our band program, private lessons are offered at our school on the following instruments: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone and percussion. Students in grades 4-8 are invited to take private, semi-private, or beginner group lessons. Instrument rentals can be arranged.
