At Saint John Vianney High School, our student musicians take courses in band, choir, guitar, piano, or general music from our music instructor. Many students take elective courses in music to round out their educational experiences. Beyond the classroom, our music organizations provide a variety of services to the school community. The BAND performs at many school events, including concerts and football games, and the CHORUS performs at all school masses and concerts, opening many evening events with the national anthem. The SHOW CHOIR performs during the Christmas Season and other special events.
