Students at SRS participate in a General Music Class, and sing in mixed choirs.
We sing and play instruments, as well read, compose and improvise music, move, describe music, along with many other fun games and activities!
Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 are welcome to audition and join the Swift River Chorale, which meets during the day on Wednesday.

Students in grades 4, 5, and 6 are invited to join the Swift River Concert Bandwhich meets on Friday for ensemble time and throughout the week for group lessons.
