CHOIR

NOVA offers Chorus as both an enrichment elective and an after-school program to any aspiring singer in the student body. Led by Ms. Grady, a professional musician with 50-plus recordings and nearly two decades of international touring and performing, the Choir learns advanced harmony techniques while performing songs representing the interests of its members.

 


 

STRING ENSEMBLES
Also led by Ms. Grady, the NOVA String Ensembles are a fun opportunity for students who are already playing stringed instruments. Music students improve their skills playing and performing together, encouraging them to continue with their instrument throughout the middle school years.

NOVA’s String Ensemble enjoys playing styles from a variety of time periods from Renaissance to modern.

 


22nd AVE JAZZ BAND
The 22nd Street Ave Band is an ensemble band experience for students playing jazz and fusion wind, percussion bass, guitar and other similar instruments.
