At St. Catherine’s, Music fuels creativity, community, and celebration. Our curriculum helps every student to develop the ability to express themselves artistically, connect with others, and perform with confidence in any setting. Music provides a unique platform for learning about other cultures and connecting with people across the globe, and travel is integral to the musical mission of our school. Ensembles in the Lower, Middle, and Upper schools regularly take part in trips that expand each student’s horizon and enrich her musical journey.
