This group of interested painters, sculptors, drawers and printers meets on a Tuesday after school and engage in various artistic pursuits. Any budding artist in Grades 6-8 is encouraged to attend.
Those students who are proficient at violin, viola, cello or double-bass are encouraged to become a member of the String Ensemble. This group meets on a Wednesday after school to rehearse concert music ranging from Bach through to The Pirates Of The Caribbean.
If you play a jazz band instrument to a good standard, and like the music of Miles Davis or Duke Ellington, then you may wish to try out for the Jazz Band. This group plays regularly throughout the year at concerts, school events and in the wider Stuttgart community.
School Concert Band
This is a large group of woodwind and brass players who build up their repertoire and concert experience at rehearsals each Wednesday after school. Anyone who plays a band instrument is welcome to attend.
The choir meets on Mondays after school to learn music ranging from the 1600s to the present day. There are numerous opportunities for this group to perform, and anyone with an interest in singing is invited to become a member.
The School Play
Each year our school presents a play that runs in the Aula on three consecutive evenings. Students will see posters around the school before Christmas, advertising auditions for the selected play. Any student who is interested in acting and moving should audition to be a member of the cast. These shows are a highlight for many members of our school community.
The School Musical
One of the highlights of the Performing Arts Calendar is the School Musical. Each year a musical is selected for which students have to audition. The rehearsals take place after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays for about three months before the show opens. Being a member of the cast, crew or orchestra is a tremendous experience for young students. For a review of this year’s musical “Fiddler on the Roof” please see the News section.
