Students begin with vocal music and general music in Pre-K3 and have the opportunity to sing all the way through upper school. Montverde Academy has choirs at the Lower, Middle, and Upper School levels both during the academic day and as after school activities. The choirs join each year to produce fall and spring concerts as well as present a service of Lessons and Carols in December. The Upper School choirs take part in the Florida MPA Choral Festival and regularly participate in honors choruses across the state. The Select Choir is a “by audition only” show choir which regularly tours Central Florida performing at festivals, conferences, and show choir competitions.
Instrumental music is also a big component of the Montverde Academy musical experience. Our state-of-the-art piano lab featuring 20 Kawai keyboards for piano/theory class as well as after school practice time allow students to practice their craft on the best instrument possible. Both band and orchestra instrumentalists have a home in the beautiful new Media and Performing Arts Center.
Montverde Academy also provides extra-curricular music programs. There is a large chapter of the Tri-M National Music Honor Society that meets weekly to program concerts and host on-campus events like “Movie Musical Night.”
