Music

The Music Department at St. Xavier consists of Band, Chorus, and Strings programs.  Below you can find more information about each and also watch some of their concerts from the past.

Choir

Become part of one of the great St. X traditions by singing with a brotherhood of more than 80 of your friends in X-Men, the school’s choir! The choir is made up of students from all grade levels. Students can join the choir by registering for the class Choir 1, Choir 2, Choir 3, or Choir 4. There is no experience necessary! Just a desire to learn. Can’t fit the class in your schedule at this time? No worries! Students that are not able to take the class can join the choir by rehearsing after school Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:15 – 4pm. Those students that are ready for an additional challenge are encouraged to audition for Ensemble X, the school’s premiere choir. Auditions take place the first week of the school year.

In addition to giving one concert each quarter, students will have the option to take on competitive travel opportunities. Recent trips include Orlando Fl. and France! Don’t miss this chance to create art and brotherhood.

Brothers, Sing on!

Band

Band courses are designed to provide a band rehearsal setting for students who wish to begin or continue to develop their playing ability on a woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument. There is an emphasis on development of musicianship and playing skills throughout the semester as we rehearse and prepare band repertoire for performance. This group will perform as a large ensemble with freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Performances include an optional spring trip, a spring band concert, and performing for the St. X graduation ceremony.
