Music at Saint David's

Saint David's boys in our Philharmonic Ensemble already are rehearsing for one of the four performances they will give this year.

Before school began this morning, they were in the music suite working on Wagner's March of the Meistersingers (see video clip).

Under the direction of conductor Phil Hough, this dedicated group of boys in Grades Three through Eight rehearses twice a week before school throughout the school-year. In addition, members commit to significant practice time at home.

The Ensemble, along with the school's First Orchestra, which is open to our younger boys, the Chamber Singers, Recorder Consort, Percussion Ensemble, and the many music classes our boys take during the year, provide our boys with an amazing array of opportunities to explore and engage with music.

Music has always played a strong role at Saint David's, a manifestation of our mission's commitment to the aesthetic and the classical ideal of balance.
