By offering our students many opportunities to explore the joys of the visual and performing arts, St. Anthony Catholic School is able to enhance the academic curriculum and further develop the whole child. Our students participate in art and music specials and beginning in 4th are given the option to join Band, Chorus, and the Spring Musical.
Our students attend art each week and learn about different mediums. Art shows are hosted during the school year. Student artwork has been entered in various competitions throughout the state.
Band is open to students in grades 4th - 8th. The school owns some instruments that are available for student use. John Cipollina is the Band Director and meets with the students at various times during the school week. We accept beginning students who have never played an instrument before, all the way up to highly advanced musician. Our students compete in the District, Regional and State Band competitions. We also have numerous concerts and performances throughout the year.
Chorus is led by Mrs. Susan Gerth and is open to students in grades 4th - 8th. Students who choose to participate in the Chorus will meet a few times a week and will perform at concerts, masses and events throughout the school year.
Students in grades 4-8 can choose to be a part of the theater program. The theater department will perform one musical in the Spring. Auditions are in the fall with practice beginning soon after the auditions are completed.
