Performing Arts

 

The music program at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School affords both academic and performance opportunities to our student body. In addition to private instrumental and vocal lessons offered during the school day, a variety of before and after-school music activities are available to all interested musicians. Opportunities for numerous service-oriented activities showcase the musical talents of our students while enabling them to share their gifts with others. All music students are exposed to quality musical experiences, bringing to life what is studied in the classroom. Live performances including concerts, recitals, operas and shows at premier venues such as the Kimmel Center and Academy of Music in Philadelphia, and the Metropolitan Opera and popular Broadway venues in New York City are offered throughout the year.

Our music activities and clubs:
· develop the musical skills, abilities and creative talents of our students
· contribute to the cultural life of the school and community
· add to the beauty and meaning of school worship

Our select choir has been invited to perform in prestigious venues including:
· The White House
· The Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg
· Longwood Gardens
· Citizens Bank Park (to perform the National Anthem for Phillies games)

Our students participate in highly competitive music festivals including:
· PMEA District, Region and State Chorus and Band and Orchestra
· All-Catholic Band and Orchestra
· Tri-County (Montgomery, Bucks, Delaware) Youth Festival
