Educating the whole child is a central tenet of Rochester Catholic Schools, and the importance of the arts is prominent at Lourdes High School. Our mission is to offer our students a comprehensive music education.
Involvement in music classes provides avenues and opportunities for artistic expression and the discovery of hidden talents while promoting self-confidence, individual growth and leadership among our youth. Our music students benefit from a strong sense of community while learning valuable life lessons in teamwork and leadership.
We structure the band and choir’s activities to serve our school, our community, and our music education curriculum. The rewards of membership in the Lourdes High School Music Department are memorable and fun experiences, a large group of fellow musicians and friends, opportunities for significant personal and musical growth, and pride of membership in a department committed to excellence. At LHS music is fun!
